i believe the problem you're experiencing is due to the lack of serial
port on the vm provisioned by openstack.

By default Openstack vmware module doesn't add a virtual serial
interface to the VM, and this can cause issues with some linux images.

To verify this you can either manually add a serial interface directly
on the newly created vm.

If this is the case you can add the following lines to

serial_port_service_uri =  vSPC.py
serial_port_proxy_uri = telnet://

This force nova to add a serial interface to the VM and force the out to
a virtual serial port server, which in may case happens to be this one
"https://sourceforge.net/p/vspcpy/code/ci/master/tree/"; and runs on the
address port 13370.

You can refer to this "https://review.openstack.org/#/c/149203/"; for
more informations.

Hope it helps.

  Ubuntu 16.04 cloudimg OVA hangs during boot on VMWare VM with
  Compatibility > 5.5

Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  OVA used: https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/xenial/current/xenial-

  Created a new VM using vSphere 6.5.0 Flash client and Deploy OVF
  functionality. Target host is VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 5969303, managed
  through the vSphere.

  When initially created, the VM was created with ESXi Compatibility
  version 5.5 (VMWare HW version 10). I later upgraded the VM to ESXi
  Compatibility 6.0 (VMWare HW version 11), after which it hung up
  during the boot process (see attached screenshot).

  I then attached a serial port to the VM to get kernel logs during
  boot. With a serial port attached, the boot process no longer hangs.
  Removing the serial port reproduces the issue, and adding it back
  resolves it again.

  The issue also reproduces with ESXi Compatibility 6.5 (VMWare HW
  version 13).

  I tried to get more information from the system using magic sysrq, but
  I have not yet found anyway to get the commands across to the VM.
