Datastore scans are only supported against datastores belonging to a VMware provider. However, in the previous CloudForms release, the scan option in the web user interface displayed for datastores from all sources. As a result, initiating a SmartState Analysis scan on a non-VMware datastore returned an error.
With this release, code was added to only allow SmartState Analysis for VMware storage records in the web user interface. As a result, the SmartState Analysis button now only shows when using a VMware datastore.
