thanks for your help, the more testing, the better ;)

for a procedure, refer to the embedded readme file, in the archive.
I've scheduled to integrate a chapter in the user manual once we get the
work mainstrean (Ie inside of the NUT source tree).
this is a very basic integration, that doesn't require vCenter... vSphere
client is directly connected to ESXI.
for the sake of completion, René Garcia (author of the current version) has
almost exactly the same setup as yours.

@René: I'm cc'ing you since you seem not to be subscribed to the NUT ML (it
could be a good idea to subscribe both to -upsdev and -upsuser.
