Hm. I think I'm runing 2.2.1; I installed recently, but I can't find
any way to confirm the version number in the UI or in the filesystem.
(Is VCL packaged anywhere? That would sure help maintainability...)
Anyhow, when I click "Manage Computers", the fields I see under "Edit
Computer Information" are (not necessarily in order):
...there's no "vmhostinuse".
I tried selecting just "IP" and "Hostname", but that brought me to a
screen for editing information about my ESXi host; I'm looking to define
a new VM, and there doesn't seem to be anything on that page that
