Can the VMDK image version be set?

I created a VMDK on my ESX system as VM Version 8. The document for Glance states that vmware_image_version is not used. When I launch an instance, I noticed that ESX shows the image version is VM Version 9. Then I eventually got an error "NovaException: The virtual disk is either corrupted or not a supported format." Is there a way to set or control what the image version is supposed to be launched?
