Is it possible to chose specific esx host, since vCenter is considered as the host, do we have control on the esx host. do let know even if its possible outside of openstack

and other question is if we were to connect to 2 different vCenter what would be the recommended approach

Great question. 1. No, using OpenStack (nova) we can't specify the individual ESX host. We can only specify the VCenter as Host. Internally VCenter will route the VM creation request to one of it's ESX hosts.

  1. Not Yet Implemented, If you want to connect two different VCenter, then we need to have two different nova-compute services (Unlike Cinder, which has support for Multi backend). But in Nova Blueprint [1] has been proposed but not yet started.
