Hi eitand84

OpenNebula works with 2 types of datastores, and you only can storage your images into image datastores.

You can find more info about opennebula datastores here:

Regarding vcenter, you need to know that every vcenter datastore can be imported into opennebula as two datastores (image and system) so u need to upload the image to the proper image datastore.

If you want to know about vcenter datastores, check this:

Your error happens because you are choosing the wrong ds.
