Have you verified that your compute nodes can connect to the cluster, independent of vmware? It could be a driver issue between vmware and ceph.

I don't think vmware has native ceph drivers (I couldn't find information stating the opposite), but you could configure an iSCSI gateway in ceph to make it usable with vmware. I just found this in a quick search.
