Hi,

        yes, we can integrate openstack with VMware Vcenter. I have written a blog on this topic. I hope it will help.

Hello,

In order to use VMware you must have a vCenter which OpenStack can talk to. Since the old ESXi driver is deprecated since I think it was Icehouse.

You can read more about configurating OpenStack for vCenter here: http://docs.openstack.org/juno/config...

Please note that not all features is supported on the VMware hypervisor.

Best regards

Hello,

I have installed openstack with opencontrail. The libvirt type for nova-compute is qemu. I am able to successfully create vms within the openstack environment. Now I want to create vms in vsphere esxi host through openstack. I have added the following lines to nova.conf

[DEFAULT] compute_driver=vmwareapi.VMwareVCDriver

[vmware] host_ip="vCenter host IP" host_username="vCenter username" host_password="vCenter password" cluster_name="vCenter cluster name"

but still the images are not being made within the esxi host and are only showing within the openstack environment. Pls help.
