It appears that my reservation is failing because the Linux guest already
has a user with ID 101:

2010-05-03 15:06:08|7355|20:20|new|utils.pm:run_ssh_command(6180)|executing
SSH command on vmguest-1:
|7355|20:20|new| /usr/bin/ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key  -l root -p 22 -x
vmguest-1 '/usr/sbin/useradd -u 101 -d /home/admin -m admin -g vcl' 2>&1
2010-05-03 
15:06:08|7355|20:20|new|utils.pm:run_ssh_command(6262)|run_ssh_command
output:
|7355|20:20|new| useradd: UID 101 is not unique

It seems that the value comes from user.uid as shown below.

Would it cause problems if I changed it to some other value that doesn't
conflict with the guest's user IDs? Say 1001 perhaps?
