I think I have the ESXi host added to the database (through the web GUI). I
also added a VM. They show up in Manage Computers->Computer Utilities as
shown below:

Hostname     IP Address  State        Owner        Schedule  Current Image
 Next Image  VM Host
esxi-host-1  <pubIP1>    vmhostinuse  admin@Local  VCL 24x7  No Image
  No Image    N/A
vm-1         <pubIP2>    maintenance  admin@Local  VCL 24x7  No Image
  No Image    N/A

The vcld --setup tool pulls the target node and esxi host information

I think I remembered another detail from the bootcamp. We were supposed to
create an OS installation outside of VCL (in other words not using a
reservation but directly in ESXi). That is the image that is pulled in
through vcld --setup, right?
