Added a separate compute node and configured it to talk to VMware ESX. It is showing up in Horizon also. Not able to launch instance, it fails. But things are working fine with KVM hypervisor. Any inputs?

Create the image with hypervisor type as vmware. then try launch the instance.

glance image-create --name precise-cloud --is-public=True \

--container-format=bare --disk-format=vmdk \

--property hypervisor_type="vmware" \

--property vmware_disktype="sparse" \

--property vmware_adaptertype="ide" < \ precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.vmdk

Which version of OpenStack are you using? The ESX driver has been deprecated in Icehouse: https://github.com/openstack/nova/blob/master/nova/virt/vmwareapi/driver.py#L100 (https://github.com/openstack/nova/blo...)
