How to create a custom RHEL 7 image for use by Red Hat OpenStack from a VMware VMDK
How to create a custom RHEL 7 image for use by Red Hat OpenStack from a VMware VMDK? A server was built in VMware to which cloud-init rpm was added. From that a VMware template was created. The VMDK was extracted from this template and then converted to qcow2. This procedure works flawlessly in RHEL 6, but the created RHEL 7 image does not boot in Openstack.
This image boots into grub, attempts to start RHEL and then times out, and reports the following error:
"Warning: Could not boot. (...) does not exist"
