Setup according to documentation here:

vCenter CLI installed

The issue I'm having isn't so much with NXLog, but rather the .pl script in the documentation. When attempting to run the script:

c:\ perl vcenter.pl -s=x.x.x.x -u=ServiceAccount -p=password

I receive the following:

`{"EventTime":"2021-04-15T19:40:39","Message":"Server version unavailable at 'https://x.x.x.x:443/sdk/vimService.wsdl' at C:/Program Files (x86)/VMware/VMware vSphere CLI/Perl/lib/VMware/VICommon.pm line 551.

{"EventTime":"2021-04-15T19:40:39","Message":"Vim::get_service_content called, but no global session is defined at vcenter.pl line 87

I can confirm these credentials were working before, as I used to have an Arcsight Smart Connector pulling these logs. Any insight that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Was due to not using the latest version of the CLI. Hope this helps someone that might run in to this. May even be worth a note in the doc too.
