Hi, I am working to integrate vmware datastore with icehouse openstack cinder. I followed this link for reference. I got stuck with the following errors in cinder-voloume.log

ERROR cinder.volume.manager [req-334b2af9-acfe-4976-893e-4fdc1be7dc26 - - - - -] Error encountered during initialization of driver: VMwareVcVmdkDriver

TRACE cinder.volume.manager Traceback (most recent call last):

This is the configuration I included in cinder.conf file:



vmware_host_ip =

vmware_host_password =**

vmware_host_username =Administrator





volume_folder = cinder-volumes

wsdl_location = http://opt/stack/vmware/SDK/vsphere-w...

osapi_volume_extension = cinder.api.contrib.standard_extensions

could anyone help me with solution to this problem ? Thanks in Advance.
