We are reloading the fefora 10 VMs to the ESXi Hypervisor now with VCL
version 2.1. The steps of the operations are as follows:

1. Add the ESXi Hypervisor to VCL;
2. Configure & test the NFS service, and mount the NFS named "VCL" to the
target ESXi Hypervisor;
3. Make a fedora 10's VM image with ESXi and copy the vmdk, vmx, nvram etc.
files to the directory NFSROOT/golden/[IMG_NAME];
4. Add the image into the tables of vcl database;
5. After those operations, the new image ( named esx3-Fedora-v0) is
correctly found in the list.

Then we select the target ESXi hypervisor and click reload, all are OK
before the following exception:

And the logs in the file vcld.log show the following msgs:

Are there any mistakes in our operations, or any key points to pay attention
to when creating the images which are used in the reload operation ?

Thank you !
