The failed reservation problem that we were experiencing was related to our
configuration.

We are currently running our VCL installation in an isolated lab, so we have
the "public" network on a 10.138.x.x subnet and the "private" management
network on 10.0.x.x  utils.pm in looking for the dynamic address finds the
private IP address, but skips our public IP address on the 10.138 subnet.

>From the utils.pm linux path:

elsif ($image_os_type =~ /linux/) {
  $identity = $IDENTITY_bladerhel;
  undef @sshcmd;
  @sshcmd = run_ssh_command($node, $identity, "/sbin/ifconfig \|grep inet",
"root");
  for my $l (@{$sshcmd[1]}) {
   # skip class a,b,c private addresses
   next if ($l =~ /inet addr:$privateIP/);
   next if ($l =~ /inet addr:10.([.0-9]*)/);       <------- removing this
line made our configuration work.
   next if ($l =~ /inet addr:127([.0-9]*)/);
   next if ($l =~ /inet addr:172([.0-9]*)/);
   next if ($l =~ /inet addr:192.168([.0-9]*)/);
   if ($l =~ /inet addr:([.0-9]*)/) {
    if ($l !~ /inet addr:$privateIP/) {
     #to cover sites using eth0 as public
     $dynaIPaddress = $1;
    }
   }
  } ## end for my $l (@{$sshcmd[1]})
