If you want to use the MKS console for VMware instances, it's now possible with the nova-mksproxy[1].
There is a devstack plugin, so simply add this in your local.conf:

  enable_plugin nova-mksproxy https://github.com/openstack/nova-mksproxy

the CLI command for getting a console URL is:

  $ nova get-mks-console <instance_name>

This is the preferred console type for VMware instances because it doesn't require any configuration
changes on the hypervisor (whereas VNC requires opening network ports).

Any comments/feedback is welcome.
