I have seen it before where ESX renames a NFS mount from [VCL] to [VCL(1)] 
which causes an issue when VCL looks for [VCL].  Also make sure to comment out 
your pwds in the logs you post.

Subject: VCL Intermittent Image Loading Problem

I've been working with a severely hacked up VCL installation. 
I've had an up and down relationship with it. Ten minutes ago, 
it was "up", and now it's sort of "down".

I was able to load images not too long ago (read: 10-20 
minutes ago), and now I can't get them to load at all. VCLd 
says the images are failing. A closer look shows that the 
images aren't getting registered, mainly because of a sudden 
"invalid datastore path" error:

I am going to have to check the management nodes to see if 
something happened to the NFS server. Is there any other 
reason this might have happened when everything seemed to be 
working well not 20 minutes ago?
