Hi all,

I recently started using the XCP 1.0 and I'm working with XenAPI.

When I try to start a VM after successfully logging in and creating a session using API it gives FIELD_TYPE_ERROR', 'vm'.

>>vms = session.xenapi.VM.get_by_name_label('CentOS 5 (64-bit)')

>>> vms

>>session.xenapi.VM.start(vms, False, False)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/XenAPI.py", line 229, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/XenAPI.py", line 133, in xenapi_request
    result = _parse_result(getattr(self, methodname)(*full_params))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/XenAPI.py", line 203, in _parse_result
    raise Failure(result['ErrorDescription'])
XenAPI.Failure: ['FIELD_TYPE_ERROR', 'vm']

Actually I could successfully get the opaque reference for the VM object.
But still it's giving me the error.

Can someone please help me to find where I am going wrong.

Thank You.
Rama Rajesh.
