Ok, our lab already had DNS capabilities, so I've set esxibl1-3* *to be
valid hostnames*.

*However, it is still saying it can't find "esxibl1".  I've pinged that
hostname from another machine on the same network and it works just fine.


Also because it kept saying it couldn't load the VM, I've found another
problem.  The vmdk file successfully copies over into the "inuse" folder.
When I manually add that VM to a blade, I'm noticing that the VM does not
keep the network setings.  I watched someone actually create this VM and I
redid it myself, and the settings do not stay when its copied over.  Not
sure if it's related, but thought I might mention it.
