Subject Re: Much Improved VCL Virtual Appliance (VCL 2.1 unofficial RC) Released
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2009 08:03:53 GMT
Hi,
Thank you for your release.
We have setup the environment for your VCL 2.1 Virtual Applicance. How could
we know whether the VCL VM provision is OK? I didn't see any imformation
about how to load a VM to the Hypervisor and run it.

Thanks
