[libvirt] Error while starting the node on ESXi hypervisor


Today I was trying to start a node using libvirt on ESX (esxi-5.1) hypervisor and I got the following error message:

virsh # define /local/myNode/esxdomain.xml
Domain testNode defined from /local/myNode/esxdomain.xml
virsh # start testNode
error: Failed to start domain testNode
error: internal error: Could not start domain: GenericVmConfigFault - Cannot open the disk /vmfs/volues/5208f99d-760cf4a2-000c29520788/testNode.vmdk or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

I checked the datastore of my ESX server and found out that instead of file one directory is getting created with the name cluster.vmdk and inside it there are few more files but cluster.vmdk file is not there.

/vmfs/volumes # cd datastore1
 /vmfs/volues/5208f99d-760cf4a2-000c29520788 # ls
 /vmfs/volues/5208f99d-760cf4a2-000c29520788 # cd cluster.vmdk
 /vmfs/volues/5208f99d-760cf4a2-000c29520788/cluster.vmdk # ls -ltr
-rw-r--r--   1  root    root   261 Aug 12 17:30 cluster.vmdk
-rw-r--r--   1  root    root   674 Aug 12 17:30 cluster.vmx
-rw-r--r--   1  root    root   0 Aug 12 17:30 cluster.vmsd
 /vmfs/volues/5208f99d-760cf4a2-000c29520788/cluster.vmdk # 

Can anyone tell me how to start a node and why I am getting that error message.
Below is my xml file.

<domain type='vmware'>
    <type arch='x86_64'>hvm</type>
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <source file='[datastore1] cluster.vmdk'/>
      <target dev='sda' bus='scsi'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' unit='0'/>
    <controller type='scsi' index='0'/>
    <interface type='bridge'>
      <mac address='00:50:56:25:48:c7'/>
      <source bridge='VM Network'/>
