Amit, I'm trying to get general idea about xCat/VCL : so, basically xCat needs to be installed and configured on VCL Mgm node(s) before it can be used with VCL, and I should be able to successfully provision xCat nodes/clients with different images. Once xCat is working then I can add bare-metal computers - blade with xCat 2.x engine. Does it sound right?
How do you tell VCL where to get image files for xCat nodes - is it 'Install Path' setting under Management Nodes -> Edit management node information? What kind of hardware do you have for xCat nodes? Are those IBM blade servers or/and PCs? Thanks.
