Aaron,

   Never mind my previous email. I have figured out the problem. The repository 
path was set wrong. It works now. Thanks a lot for your help.

Lei

Subject: RE: questions regarding creating base images

Aaron,

  Thanks for the information. I upgraded to VMware server 2.0, but have 
encountered some other issues. I have restored it to 1.0 now.

  Yes, I am using VCL 2.2.1. I changed the provision module to 'VMware' and see 
more progress for the capturing base image. However, it still failed at the 
end. Can you please see what the problem is this time?

Thanks again,
Lei

No you don't need to upgrade 2.0. IMO, 2.x is more flakey than 1.x and
will cause you other issues.

If you were to upgrade, I'd recommend to use ESXi.


First, just to make sure, are you using the VCL 2.2.1 release?

If so, you should be able to fix this problem by changing the computer
provisioning module to 'VMware' for each of your vmguest computers.
