nova-compute.conf virt_type value for VMWare Fusion?

"What value should I use for the parameter in the /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf file [libvirt] section, parameter "virt_type = " if using VMware Fusion instead of QEMU or KVM?"

OpenStack compute Installation


This section describes how to install and configure the Compute service on a compute node. The service supports several hypervisors to deploy instances or VMs. For simplicity, this configuration uses the QEMU hypervisor with the KVM extension on compute nodes that support hardware acceleration for virtual machines. On legacy hardware, this configuration uses the generic QEMU hypervisor. You can follow these instructions with minor modifications to horizontally scale your environment with additional compute nodes.


Edit the [libvirt] section in the /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf file as follows:

[libvirt] ... virt_type = qemu
