Okay, I see what you mean. In case you call
esxVI_HostHostBusAdapter_CastFromAnyType for a HostHostBusAdapter
object that is actually a HostParallelHba then you get this error
message:

  Call to esxVI_HostHostBusAdapter_CastFromAnyType for unexpected type '<other>'

I have improved this to report the actual type:

  Call to esxVI_HostHostBusAdapter_CastFromAnyType for unexpected type
'HostBlockHba'

Here's the patch for this
