Subject: [Openstack] Snapshot failure with VMwareVCDriver

I am unable to get snapshots working in my devstack setup with the VCDriver.

When I tried to snapshot a vm instance, in the glance image-list, i could firstly see a new image was create and the status was "saving", few seconds later the new created image entry disappeared from the image list and when i check the vCenter, in the task history i found the "Create virtual machine snapshot" operation is completed but there is an error of the "Copy virtual disk" operation:  "The requested operation is not implemented by the server."

Anyone has the same problem and know how to solve it?  Any idea about what caused the problem?   Is this a bug of vmware api with the devstack?
