[libvirt] Libvirt ESX: Image file not getting copied to ESX server



Hi,

I am trying to start a node using libvirt on ESX hypervisor. Before starting I am performing the following steps:

1) vol-create datastore1 /local/new_volume.xml (Creating a volume in pool)
2) define /local/esxdomain.xml (Defining a node)
3) start MyNode (Starting a node)

I tried to get the status of my node and it is showing running but I am not able to ping my node (as it is in network). I later got the console of my node and found out that my node is not even getting started. It says "Operating System Not Found". I guess this is because my vmdk image file is not getting copied and the first command is just placing two files .vmdk and *-flat.vmdk (these are dummy files I guess). But it is not placing my original .vmdk files. How to place the original vmdk file in datastore. If I place it using scp command then libvirt pops out a message saying "Could not start domain: GenericVmConfigFault". How to resolve this error. I am pasting my xml files below.

Any help is appreciated... :)

new_volume.xml:

<volume>
  <name>test/MyNode.vmdk</name>
  <allocation>0</allocation>
  <capacity unit='G'>3</capacity>
  <target>
     <path>/local/vmdk/MyNode.vmdk</path>
     <format type='vmdk'/>
  </target>
</volume>


esxdomain.xml:

<domain type='vmware'>
  <name>test</name>
  <memory>1048576</memory>
  <currentMemory>1048576</currentMemory>
  <vcpu>1</vcpu>
