Hi Kiran,

Do your vmprofile adapter names virtualswitch0 and virtualswitch1 match the adapters listed on your esx server?

hello Josh,
I am facing some what similar issue.I have added a new computer host(virtual
machine).
I checked the dhcp.conf files, the addressing, etc/hosts file.
But on making a reservation, my virtual machine does startup, but its not
getting any IP addresses assigned. Its unable to detect any networks
created,
I have renamed the  .vmdk and -flat.vmdk files according to the naming
convention
(Note: we are using ESX provisioning and it is a Windows 2003 image).
Is there anythin specific you wanted me to check??

Thanks,
Kiran

Jeff,

VCL will handle creating the virtual machines on the VMWare host.  It
manages
both the vmdk and vmx files, and then registers/unregisters the virtual
machines as needed.  What it doesn't currently do is automatically create
new
virtual machines in its own database or dynamically assign virtual machines
to VM hosts.

This is what you should do next time you need to add virtual machines:

* look at the highest MAC address assigned in the computers table
* go to the Add Multiple Computers page, enter the MAC address that would
come
after what you looked up, and enter the rest of the information required on
that page.
* get the DHCP info and add it to your dhcpd.conf file
* add entries to /etc/hosts for the virtual machines
* go to the Virtual Hosts section of the site and assign the new virtual
machines to VM hosts

After doing that, vcld should be able to provision reservations for the
virtual machines.

Aaron/Andy: correct me if I missed anything.

I did use the "Add Multiple" for this, but I didn't put a MAC as we
hadn't
created virtual machines for these (and thus had no MAC to use).  I

10 computers using add multiple.

I plan to create 10 virtual machines on the VMWare host and get their MAC
addresses and add them to the 10 computers in the computer table that
were
created with add multiple.  From what I understand, this should resolve
it.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

To save some time next time, I'd have created the 10 virtual machines
first, grabbed the first MAC address, and then used the "Add Multiple"
with
that MAC address.  I'd still have to actually create (or clone) the 10
virtual machines though.

Thanks,
Jeff

I'm misunderstanding and that there is really something else going
on.
Jeff,

The "Add Multiple" checkbox on Manage Computers->Edit Computer
Information is
designed to help with this.  You should only need to enter the
information on
the "Add Multiple Computers" page that link takes you to one time to
generate
as many virtual machines as you want.  Make sure you enter the
start/end
private IPs and the start MAC (also make sure to select available as
the
state as there's currently a bug preventing adding machines directly in
the maintenance state).

After submitting that page, you will also be able to generate the
additional
DHCP info for your dhcpd.conf file.  You will need to enter the private
IP of
your management node to get that file.

We have it slated for version 2.4 to dynamically manage the virtual
hosts/guests for you.
