    Description

      Description of problem:

      Sometimes we see VMs fail to power on when the land on a host that does not have enough resources. The current power on does not retry or leverage DRS to power on the node on a suitable host.

      https://github.com/vmware/govmomi/issues/1026

      Our code is still making calls to PowerOnVM_Task which, according to the vsphere docs, is deprecated and we should use PowerOnMultiVM_Task instead.

      PowerOnVM_Task does not return a DRS ClusterRecommendation, no vmotion nor host power operations will be done as part of a DRS-facilitated power on. To have DRS consider such operations use PowerOnMultiVM_Task.

      As of vSphere API 5.1, use of this method with vCenter Server is deprecated; use PowerOnMultiVM_Task instead.

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
      4.8.x

      How reproducible:
      Always

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1.
      2.
      3.

      Actual results:
      Sometimes powers on fails requiring manual intervention.

      Expected results:
      PowerOn should use DRS to ensure it's always successful.
