It's been a while since I've worked with this older code, but I'll try
to offer some answers. Did you see the diagram on the pre-install
checklist located here: http://ibiblio.org/vclvm/pre-install.htm?
1) Each blade has a MAC address of it's "public" interface. Let's
say for a given blade, this MAC is 00:11:22:33:44:55 In the DHCP
system this blade's public (eth0) interface needs to have it's MAC
placed so that when the MAC 00:11:22:33:44:55 is requested, it gets
the same IP address every time.
2) Whatever IP the MAC 00:11:22:33:44:55 corresponds to 22.214.171.124
and hostname blade4-2.cnl.ncsu.edu where the naming convention is
blade-CHASSISNUM-BLADENUM.yourdomain.com Update the "hostname" and
"IP Address" fields of that blade's computer table entry.
The way to do this automatically is to use VCL to manage an all
virtualized infrastructure using the ESX provisioning capabilities
currently located available through the apache.org VCL SVN. The all
virtual environment requires the most minimal configuration and the
least amount of complexity. To read about how that is done look at
I also have a virtual machine appliance (similar to the VCL 1.9)
except this is designed for all-virtual environments and requires
minimal configuration. It's in beta stages right now, so if anyone
wants to pre-release copy, post back to the list, and let me know.

I am now trying the operation of VCL. A problem comes about that the
Addresses in the "Computer Utility" List are all "126.96.36.199".
I had got information from http://ibiblio.org/vclvm/ telling us to
the IPs to match the public IPs via DHCP service. But when i tried
into the managed Blade via remote control, i was puzzled at the
password. And even after a new reservation has been created and then
( via remote control), the command ifconfig is still invalid~
Will you please answer me two questions ?
1. how could i get the public ip of the managed blades and then
2. is there any way to get the public IPs from blades to the Computer
Utility List automatically ?
PS: i am using VCL VM version 1.6 now got from http://ibiblio.org/vclvm/
