From Carlos A. on the list

The problem is the line that states <source file='/tmp/iso'/> while it should state <source file='[datastore] path/to/iso'/> or something like that.

I found that file "LibVirtDriverVMware.cc" does not generate the proper datastore substitution, although ISO file is copied.


The solution is to create a sym link to the file with the .iso suffix, and change the deployment file accordingly.
