Netstack support

As VMware starts to split out core services into using their own netstacks (the best practice for vMotion today is to use the vmotion netstack... expecting to see other things like vSAN head in that direction, too)... it's even more important to be able to automagically be able (easily) configure netstack when provisioning VMKernel interfaces from PowerCLI.

Additionally, the netstack value should be a property of the VMKernel object, rather than something (only) buried deep within the boundless wonder that is ExtensionData.

    This functionality has been shipped in PowerCLI 12.0

    Would be useful. Also it's a property of the VMK so probably should be included.

    Definitely would like to see this for the available stacks as well any custom stacks that are user created

    yes please! also would be nice to do new,set,get for vmkernels in response to netstacks to pull in ip gateway and subnet specific to a netstack instance too.


    also to be able to configure netstack to set the gateway after vmkernel creation.

    Also would be helpful if the netstack was a property of the base vmk object, rather than having to go look through the extensiondata... :)
