Hey guys, install went fine but no matter what I do I cannot register the plugin. I get:
"Registration failed with the following message: NVPF-00001: Invalid vSphere credentials: vcenter-server.mydomain.com:443 - administrator. Reason: java.rmi.RemoteException: VI SDK invoke exception:org.dom4j.DocumentException: null Nested exception: null"
The credentials *are* correct, though.
I have opened a support ticket and haven't heard a word from them yet.
See The Solution
Does your vCenter username or password contain escape characters like "&", "<", or ">"? If so, you'll need to change them to something alphanumeric to complete the registration. You can change them back afterward.

Yes, in fact is has an "&" in it...
Argh... I will change it and post back in a couple minutes.
Used a different account and worked fine. Thanks for the info!
