Hello Dmitri,

I have checked all your suggestion and it is all configured correctly and the ssh connections from my VCL node work properly,

'ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key u804vmsrv'
'ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key VMXP1'


But I continue with the same problem and I can not create the image. I will try to find the problem in the scripts.

Many thanks in avanced,

Could you please check the following:

- VMWARE host is added with following properties: State: vmhostinuse, Type: blade, Provisioning Engine: xCAT 2.x.
You can check/change it under Manage Computers.

- the VM you are trying to image (lets call it baseImage01) is added with following properties: State: available, Type: virtualmachine, Provisioning Engine: VMWare.

- make sure that baseImage01 VM is assigned to VMWare host under Virtual Hosts, 
select your VM Host from the list and add baseImage01 to 'VMs assigned to host';

- from Linux server where you have VCLD make sure you can ssh to VMWare host 
using vcl.key: run 'ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key vmwarehost' (I think name of the 
host in your case is u804vmsrv). You should login without a need to enter 
password. This implies that 'End Node SSH Identity Key Files:' is to 
/etc/vcl/vcl.key in management node configuration.

- from Linux server where you have VCLD make sure you can ssh to baseImage01 VM using vcl.key: run 'ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key baseImage01'. Once you checked/set all these, try to create image again.
Thanks.

Many Thanks Josh and Juan Jose and others for your help, but I continue with 
problems to create image. I explain in below lines a little my problems.

Juanjo,

To have your system ready to capture your first base image, you need to have your vmhost and VMs added to VCL using the VCL website. The following page explains how to do that:


https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/VCL+2.2.1+-+Further+Steps+if+Using+VMware

I already have done all of this page, but I continue with problems to create 
the image.
Since you only have one vmhost server right now, you'll need to follow the sections titled "Adding Individual VMware Servers", "Adding Virtual Machines", and "Assing a VM to a Virtual Host".

Done.
When creating your first base image, you don't use the VCL website; you use 'vcld -setup'. These are the instructions you should be using to create your initial base image:


https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/Create+a+Windows+Base+Image


Until you have captured your first base image, you'll always receive the message "You don't have access to any environments and, therefore, cannot make any reservations." on the New Reservations page because you don't have any images to have access to.
I can launch the capture process with "vlcd -setup", but when I have introduced 
all parameters and start the capture process I received some error messages that I show 
below:

I think that here system is complaint about doesn't have "vim-cmd" and 
"vmware-vim-cmd" command. Is it necessary to install it?, I have installed two servers, 
one VLC node server, and another VMware Server 2.0. I think that the VCL node need this commands.

Many thanks in avanced,

Josh

Many Thanks James,

I have been able to change the state machines to available. After change
the machine state if I try to make a reservation I continue receiving
bellow error message:

"You don't have access to any environments and, therefore, cannot make
any reservations."

I am trying to create a image, many thanks

Juanjo.

It's not necessary to create an image from a physical machine
(probably won't work for a vmguest anyway).

But, the vcl manager must think the vcl computer is 'available'

Here's how to change a computer's state to 'available'

Manage Computers =>

    [X] Computer Utilities
    Submit =>
[X] vmhostname1
        Change state of or delete selected computers[available]
        Confirm Change =>

First at all, many thanks Josh,

As I said in my first mail, I have two machines or servers. One is a VCL
node with all configuration as I have followed from VCL documentation.
The other server i a Ubuntu 8.04 LTS with VMware Server 2.0. In this
last server I have two virtual machines that I have added to VCL as
documentation said.

After that I have tried to add image from one of this virtual machines
to VCL node with vcld -setup but I faced one message that it is
impossible to create image because the machines are in "maintanance"
mode, as documentation said. Thus I can not to advance in the
configuration. Is it necessary to create image with vcld -setup from a
physical machine?

Many thank again in advance,

Juanjo,

Welcome to the VCL community!  This is definitely the correct list
to use for
VCL (non-development) related questions.

After you have imported the image using 'vcld -setup', you'll need
to add the
image to an image group.

On the Privileges page, make sure there is a node with either your
userid or a
user group you are a member of granted the"imageCheckOut"
permissions.  Also,
at the same node, make sure the image group you added the image to
is granted
the"available"  attribute.

Those two things should get you passed the"You don't have access to any
environments and, therefore, cannot make any reservations."  error
message.

We also have a chat room on freenode (IRC) that you can join to get
more real-
time support - #asfvcl.

Hello everybody,

We are writing from Universitat Autònama de Barcelona Engineering
School
computer support department. We are trying to install one VCL node
with
a VMware Server Host as provisioning machine. I have followed the
installation process specified in next URL:


https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/VCL+2.2.1+Installation


I have two servers, one with Debian 6 with MySQL and the VCL package
installed, apache-VCL-2.2.1-incubating.tar.bz2. Also I have another
server with Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS with VMware Server installed
with two
virtual machines. These virtual machines have Windows XP.

I have followed all configuration process specified in the above
URL but
when I try to make a reservation, I viewed the message"You don't have
access to any environments and, therefore, cannot make any
reservations.".

I don't know if I am writing to the correct mail, but if it is not the
correct place, please can you inform me about how I get support about
this, I will be to much grateful about information.

Many thanks in advance,
