There was a note in INSTALLATION file that if you are using VMWare, you should 
set state to "virtualmachine" and if left state to "available" website brings 
error (red next near state) that virtual machine can only be added in 
"maintenance" state. At that time I was using SVN trunk (my fault).

After some reading I found that. I think VMWare 2.X is not supported at this

My bad, I was too quick. This error is in trunk version. In printed very 
similar array from PHP.

There is more, NewSID tool is retired and no more supported. Link: 
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897418.aspx in 
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/Management+Node+Installation is 
no more valid.

Is it possible to run the whole system in standalone environment? As I 
understand you must have two interfaces (eth0, eth1), public and private? Is it 
possible for testing purpose run everything on single interface or use 
loop-back interface, sub-interfaces? I was trying to follow the articles, but 
after getting VCL running and VMWare Server installed there seems to be very 
little documentation how to make everything work.
