Once your VCL website is working you will need to load each image on a VM, install and configure Cygwin sshd, then save each as a VCL image. Rather than taking weeks to get this working via the list I could help you through this over phone then send a summary to the list. I'd like to use the new VMware code so it can be tested in another environment. Send me a note directly if you want to arrange a time next week.

It will be helpful to know your existing datastore is structured. Do you have a directory for each set of vmdk files? Do you have the ability to create additional datastores? It may be wise to use separate space while you're getting things working to eliminate the possibility of affecting your existing images.

David,

No sir, I did not.   My boss has asked me to get a VCL prototype up and running 
and linked to our already created
vmware ESX 4.1 server's datastore of 'ready-to-roll'  Windows XP Desktop images 
that have all of UCSB's licensed
lab software pre-installed on them.  I've tested those images and they are 
fully accessible via RDP from off-campus,
so I was hoping this would be fairly straightforward, but it hasn't.

How realistic is it to expect that I'd have a working prototype by 8/31?

-Randy.

Hi Randy,

After installing VLC and setting it up, have you changed the password of 
"admin" account?

Josh,

Thanks for that quick reply!
I ran 'testsetup.php' as suggested and it came back clean, but am still unable 
to login via the management node.

Please see the 'testsetup.php' results below:

while getting VCL up and running, having them displayed makes debugging
a little easier. Edit your php.ini file to modify this setting.
Done

I'm a vcl newbie, installed it fresh on a gentoo 2.6.24-26.64 x64 linux host for 
UCSB's College of Letters & Sciences.
Every since completing the installation of the management node, I was only able 
to login one time successfully and
get the program configured for basic operations.  Since that time, any attempt to login 
as "admin" with the proper
password, has been rejected.
