Operation system not found Error VMware Openstack

Operation system not found Error VMware Openstack

If you keep getting the “Operation system not found” error while deploying images in Openstack on ESX/ESXi host, it is probably because of you did not specify the the “vmware_ostype” parameter while creating/importing image – otherwise, it is not going to be properly recognized by VMware.


glance image-create –name=cirros –disk-format=vmdk –property vmware_adaptertype=”ide” –property vmware_disktype=”sparse” –is-public=True –property vmware_ostype=”otherLinux64Guest” –container-format=bare < cirros-0.3.2-x86_64-disk.vmdk
