I'm configuring openstack on an esxi 5.5 machine. I've used debian wheezy for controller and compute-node. I followed an howto on the internet

I get an error on the compute node in nova-compute.log

2015-02-08 21:47:39.313 2746 CRITICAL nova.virt.vmwareapi.driver [-] Unable to connect to server at None, sleeping for 60 seconds

I've added this to nova.config

compute_driver=vmwareapi.VMwareESXDriver vmwareapi_host_ip=xxxxxx vmwareapi_host_username=xxxxx vmwareapi_host_password=xxxxxx connection_type = vmwareapi vmwareapi.integration_bridge=br-int [vmware] wsdl_loc=file:///opt/stack/vmware/SDK/vsphere-ws/wsdl/vim25/vimService.wsdl

And this to nova-compute.con

[DEFAULT] compute_driver=vmwareapi.VMwareESXDriver libvirt_ovs_bridge=br-int libvirt_vif_type=ethernet libvirt_vif_driver=nova.virt.libvirt.vif.LibvirtHybridOVSBridgeDriver libvirt_use_virtio_for_bridges=True

I've download the vsphere sdk to /opt/stack/vmware/ and the file vimService.wsdl is in the directory.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

nova-compute.conf needs to have the [vmware] section populated with:

cluster_name = None

There are other options that are needed defined here:
