Hi I have a question regarding discovery of existing vms when installing Compute service on a Hyper-V node. I observed that existing vms do not show up in openstack. Is there a way to make those instances get managed by openstack or am I missing something ?

This is correct, VMs not created by OpenStack can co-exist with OpenStack instances, although not recommended for the general use case.

OpenStack cannot take ownership of existing VMs, as there is no way to associate them to an existing tenant, image, flavor, etc.
