Good morning --

I have two questions regarding computer settings in VCL -- the "RAM," "No.
Processors," and "Processors Speed (MHz)" settings when creating computers,
or editing computer information from the Manage Computers tab.

Note that I'm using VCL exclusively with ESXi 4.1, manually installed (no

   1. Am I correct that these settings are irrelevant for my VMWare host
   computer because ESXi was manually installed (i.e. not provisioned via
   2. I've watched the VCL bootcamp videos from NCSU this past summer, and
   there was a comment that these settings apply only to virtual machines --
   specifically, to match requested images up with available VMs.  However,
   end-user reservations are getting hardware based upon what was configured
   for the original image, not what I've subsequently specified when adding
   individual VM "computers" or "slots."  For example, the base image was
   created with a 2GHz processor and 512 MB RAM.  When a reservation is made
   using a VM that I've set as having only 256MB RAM and a 1GHZ processor,
   those settings seem to be ignored -- the original hardware settings from
   the image (2GHz, 512MB RAM) are assigned to the VM slot.

Thanks to everyone on the list -- you've all been so helpful as I'm getting
to know VCL.
