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.
