No virtual center is not required in any way for ESX 3i. When you say
you're installing it for a month, do you mean you've downloaded the
ESX3i .iso installer from vmware, burned it to a CD, and am installing
it from the CD? ESX 3i has to be installed manually today, VCL cannot
"deploy" the ESX 3i hypervisor onto bare metal through any
provisioning technique (xcat, esx, etc ...).
xcat isn't well suited to managing ESX resources. This is why the ESX
provisioning module (esx.pm) was written to use the VMware API to
drive VMware resources (ESX and ESX 3i). Are you using the esx.pm
