    This worked for me, only after ensuring that there was only one VM with a particular name. I’m trying to do something different and had same name in 2 clusters. It’s kind of difficult to read your code, because of the unfortunate mangling by your blogsite.

      Hi Bruce,

      I apologize for the readability issue! I have fixed that – it was forcing only the excerpt to be available on the post itself. D’oh!

      Should be all set now, thanks again for the feedback. =)
