We are having an issue getting the VCL working.  It appears to be
logging into our NAS/NFS box and issuing 'cp' commands and copying the
VM files from 'golden' to 'inuse'.  After the files finish copying, we
get an error, ' Virtual Machine TECS-ESX-4600-2 not found' (as seen
below).  The "TECS-ESX-4600-2" is an ESX Host, which VCL seems to
reference correctly as a host some times, as seen in this line,
"--server 'TECS-ESX-4600-2'".  Though right after that, it shows,
"--vmname TECS-ESX-4600-2".   I am not sure how it got in the system as
BOTH a server AND a VM.

We are using the virtual appliance 2.1, downloaded via the wiki site.  I
did a search of the database for TECS-ESX-4600-2 and it only shows up in
tables for logs and in the 'computername' table, which seems to make
sense.  I grepped the following directories (recursively) for TECS-ESX:

grep "TECS-ESX" -R /var/www/html
´╗┐grep "TECS-ESX" -R /opt/vcl
´╗┐grep "TECS-ESX" -R /etc

Nothing significant turned up.

Any help would be appreciated.
