You would need to install the VMWare vSphere SDK on the management node.

Ok, I seemed to have solved the problems below. For the first one I did not
have the management node assigned to a group.

For the second issue I saw that my virtual machine was not set up for
vmware. It now tries to create the image but I think I must be missing a few
perl modules as I now get

the following:


Can't locate VMware/ in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/vcl/bin/../../../.. /usr/local/vcl/bin/../..
/usr/local/vcl/bin/.. /usr/local/vcl/bin/../lib

/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at /

I will fix this and try again. Making some progress.....




Hello,  I have VCL 2.2 setup on two Centos boxes (Web and database, and
management) using ESXi 4.1. The management node can communicate with VMware
host and guest using SSH. I am not sure the Web node is communicating with
management though. I get the following message when trying to change the
guest state:


Change State of Computers

The following computers currently have reservations on them but no
functional management node was found for them. Nothing will be done with
them at this time: 




Is there a way to confirm communication to the management node?


Also when trying to create an image I get the following in the logs:

There may be something I am missing as the documentation is sketchy. I am
not sure if the image needs to be created via the web interface before
capturing it or not.


Thanks for any help or pointers you can provide.
