I have installed openstack with opencontrail. The libvirt type for nova-compute is qemu. I am able to successfully create vms within the openstack environment. Now I want to create vms in vsphere esxi host through openstack. I have added the following lines to nova.conf

[DEFAULT] compute_driver=vmwareapi.VMwareVCDriver

[vmware] host_ip="vCenter host IP" host_username="vCenter username" host_password="vCenter password" cluster_name="vCenter cluster name"

but still the images are not being made within the esxi host and are only showing within the openstack environment. Pls help.

nova.conf configures the Compute service only, not the Image service. The configuration guide indicates that you can't store images in the VMware cluster;
