Thanks Alan,

that resolved it.

I’ve spent a fair bit of time getting the VMPS stuff working, in particular with a mysql DB, and have been documenting for the project I am using this on. 

I would be more than happy to share the cookbook on configuring the VMPS if you think there’s any value.

I know there is not much call for VMPS, but I know I would have appreciated a single source to follow.

IF there’s value, let me know where and how I can contribute the documentation.

Thanks for the help!
