Instances Created through Ubuntu Openstack not displayed in ESXi

I have a ESXi hypervisor (Host1) on which I have installed a VM1 based on Ubuntu 12.4 LTS server. Now I installed single Node Openstack in this VM1. Host1 when viewed using vSphere Client has one vm VM1.

As the single node openstack is installed in VM1, created one instance (ins1) in VM1. This ins1 is based on Cirros where the image used is cirros-0.3.0-x86_64-disk.img. Now the openstack VM1 has a ins1 which can be logged into from VM1.

here is my query. Since there has been a instance ins1 created, as per my understand of openstack this ins1 should be visible from the vSphere Client. i.e now vSphere Client should show one VM i.e VM1 on which Openstack is installed and ins1 the instance VM created through openstack.

Is that understand wrong

No, you will not be able to view the ins1 on vSphere client. vSphere client is used only to manage ESX/ESXi hypervisor. Mostly the single node openstack will be running kvm as the hypervisor until and unless you have configure the openstack node to create vms in ESXi via vCentre. you will have to use virsh list --all command to check the vms in kvm.

you can also use Virtual Machine Manager based on libvirt to view and manage virtual machines in most of the hypervisors
