Obtains a reference to
for the file transfer operation. The information object contains a URL
to the file inside the guest to be transferred to the client.
See VcFileTransferInformation for information on how to use the information object. If the power state of the Virtual Machine is changed when the file transfer is in progress, or the Virtual Machine is migrated, then the transfer operation is aborted.
In order to ensure a secure connection to the host when transferring a file using HTTPS, the X.509 certificate for the host must be used to authenticate the remote end of the connection. The certificate of the host that the virtual machine is running on can be retrieved using the following fields: vm (VcVirtualMachine) -> runtime (VcVirtualMachineRuntimeInfo) -> host (VcHostSystem) -> config (VcHostConfigInfo) -> certificate.
|vm||VcVirtualMachine||Virtual Machine to perform the operation on.|
|auth||VcGuestAuthentication||The guest authentication data.|
|guestFilePath||String||The complete path to the file inside the guest that has to be transferred to the client. It cannot be a path to a directory or a symbolic link.|
