how to make VMware ESXi4 smart shutdown

Dear All;

I have installed the free VMware ESXi4 in one server. i connected this server with MGE UPS. I installed vMA to use it to smart shutdown the ESXi according the attached installation guide.
when i run this command from the vMA
shutdownESXi.pl --server 10.2.1.140 --username root --password password

i found this error:
SOAP Fault:
-----------
Fault string: fault.RestrictedVersion.summary
Fault detail: RestrictedVersionFault
End Disconnect

how to solve this problem?

Thank you...

It is possible that the API of ESXi and the vMA do not match.
It is also possible that this function does not work, because scripting is not allowed in the free ESXi version.
