Currently there are 2 VMware drivers:

 *   VMwareVCDriver – this lets nova compute communicate with a vCenter server (which manages the ESX hosts)
 *   VMwareESXDriver – this lets nova compute manage the ESX host

Hi Stackers,
I just looked into the VMware Vcenter Driver, seems it manages a vcenter cluster as a single compute node, even it contains more than 1 physical servers. It's not very connivence to know what's the real resource I had in my cluster.

Is there any reason why we don't identify every ESXI host in OpenStack?
