Heather, I'm working with our systems group that manages our VMware environment to get the CoManage virtual appliance installed so I can start to play with it. But that group is reporting that they think that the virtual disk format is incompatible with the latest version of VMware ESX. Have you heard any other reports of problems?

I just wanted to update you on this issue. I downloaded and installed
COmanage version 0.1.3. Unfortunately, the virtual disk format appears
to be incompatible with the latest version of VMware ESX, and the
virtual machine fails to start.

Although I could spend some time converting the disk to different
formats, we're likely not the only site experiencing this problem, and
we should probably discuss this issue with the publishers of the virtual
machine. Would you be able to submit a bug report about this problem?

The network configuration of VMs is almost identical to physical
