I have it partially running (feels good). I have a base image created and it's moved to managed node. Everything is grouped correctly with the right permissions and it already allows to load image to virtual machine. The problem I am having now is that setup of private network (VMWare Host-Only) is not working. Virtual machine gets IP from DHCP exactly as it should, but host computer is not reachable from virtual machine and virtual machine is not reachable from host computer. I have a key generated on public network and VCLD can not connect via SSH because of host is unknown after loading on virtual machine. I am gonna try fixing networks setup in a few days.
Also found a problem with vcl.sql. In image table you have: (7, 'vmwarewinxp-base7-v1', 'No Apps (WinXP vmware)', 1, 1, 16, NULL, 512, 1, 1024, 100, NULL, 5, 0, 0, '2007-04-04 09:45:38', 1, 0, 'vcl', 3244), While in imagerevision table: (7, 7, 0, 1, '2007-04-03 11:24:12', 0, 1, NULL, 'vmwarewinxp-base7-v0'), Imagerevision record should be changed to vmwarewinxp-base7-v1, that's the name used in all tutorials, otherwise it will always look for vmwarewinxp-base7-v0 in management node. Also I noticed that documentation for provisioning modules is not finished (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/Provisioning+Engine+Module+Interface+Specification) On 2010.06.21, at 20:16, Josh Thompson wrote: > -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- > Hash: SHA1 > > David, > > I've never set up the VCL standalone environment.
