/**
 * Create a Virtual Server with Image Template
 *
 * This script creates a VSI order in a simplified way using the minimum required properties that
 * SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest::createObject method specifies and setting an Image Template to be used to provision
 * on Computing Instance. The execution of this script will incur charges on your account. For testing input parameters
 * before ordering a VSI use SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest::generateOrderTemplate method instead.
