    1) 4.2 (unsure of other versions) does not correctly install on Debian 8. It seems to assume that if I'm not running SuSE, I must use /etc/rc.d/init.d. Debian uses /etc/init.d (actually, I think preferred is to use systemD or maybe even something else, but /etc/init.d is functional). I had to create a symlink from /etc/SeSE-release to /etc/debian_version to get it to install.
    2) I'm running a single vCenter VM and a single PCNS VM on a two server cluster. Each server has two UPSes. Those UPSes do power other things that I can't control or must always be up (routers, switches, etc.), so I'd like some advanced control over how migrations and shutdowns occur. However...  it's telling me that I can't have PCNS on a VM in advanced mode. That seems counter-intuitive. It's advanced mode. It should allow everything and have the most fine-grained control over what happens.

    What version of Debian are you running?

    Sorry fo the inconvenience. I will pass your comment on to Product Management.
