Hi Everyone,

I'm using VMware ESXi 4.1 to host my vcl systems. There is
a known issue, if the ESXi host reboots, it clears
the '.ssh/authorized_keys' file. Which means you have to
copy the authorized_keys from the management node
again to make the vmware host accessible.

Here's how to make it persistent.

Step 1) tar -C / -czf "/bootbank/vcl.tgz" ".ssh"
Step 2) vi /bootbank/boot.cfg
          append ' --- vcl.tgz' to 'modules' line

i.e.
> kernel=b.z
> kernelopt=
> modules=k.z --- s.z --- c.z --- oem.tgz --- license.tgz --- m.z --- state.tgz 
> --- vcl.tgz
> build=4.1.0-260247
> updated=2
> bootstate=0


If you want to see what's in the file
'tar tvzf /bootbank/vcl.tgz'

Hope this helps,

__Jim O'Dell
