VMWare community:

VMWare configuration reference:

OpenStack Imaging guide:

Not a simple 1, 2, 3 process. The community link at the top should have some answers and you might want to ask VMWare directly on how they suggest moving a VM from vSphere/ESXi to an OpenStack instance. (Any caveat steps, etc etc.) After much research it appears that building a VM on KVM and sending it to glance is much easier and better supported than doing from ESXi.
