No files in /var/lib/nova/instances


We were trying to configure live migration in our openstack installed in Ubuntu 11.04 machine on VMware hypervisor. When we tried to configure the NFS share, we checked the /var/lib/nova/instances folder. This folder was empty. When browsing the internet, we found that a folder (_base) will be created in here whenever an instance is launched. Can you tell us why there is no such folder created. Is it because we are using VMware hypervisor and this will be available only in KVM?
