I'm currently trying to learn openstack-ansible in replacement of packstack as it is the "official" tool to deploy Openstack.

I've followed the instructions for openstack Queens deployment here :

https://docs.openstack.org/openstack-ansible/latest/user/index.html (https://docs.openstack.org/openstack-...)

but I didn't found anything about the management of VMWare for Openstack integration using OSAD.

Do the VMWare VSphere support have been removed ?

Is it possible to specify in OSAD an installation directly able to deal with VCenters ? if yes, how you do it ?

Thank you

https://docs.openstack.org/openstack-... seems to indicate that vsphere is not supported. Scroll down to nova_supported_virt_types.

I doubt that there is an “official” deployment tool, by the way.

Even on the old releases of OSAD you still don't see vsphere as supported but in the documentation of the compute node you have the possibility to do it. So I suppose that OSAD don't support vsphere event if Openstack Queens does. It's strange as it's the most known tool for openstack deployment.

Just a quick note, there is no official tool to deploy openstack, there are many options and alternatives under OpenStack umbrella
