Add ability to import ISO into Update Manager via PowerCLI

VCSA currently (6.7 U3) has no ability to import ISO images into Update manager via command line/PowerCLI.

Code capture from VCSA does not show any output, so this functionality is not yet exposed it seems.

Having a means to manage ESXi images via PowerCLI (import, delete, inspect) will be very helpful for Day1 and Day2 operations when you have multiple vCenters (tens) and have to manage various flavors of ESX Custom Images.

    This is possible by manipulating the VC Integrity API. I'm hoping to have some PowerCLI code published to Git hub soon that does this and other update manager tasks.
