Description Calvin Hartwell 2016-03-04 05:55:23 EST
Description of problem:

The list of Guest OS types for the VMWare compute profiles (small, large, medium) is missing an entry for RHEL 7 32/64. 

You can of course select Other (32-bit) or Other (64-bit) but it is quite embarrassing to see our OS missing from this list. I thought these values were actually pulled from vCenter, but apparently their list is different and actually includes an option for RHEL7 32/64. 

Why is this important? Apparently this is used by vCenter to pre-configure the vmdk before a provision. I assume it has other benefits (searching, reporting) etc. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.1.X (and lower) 

How reproducible:
- Easy to reproduce
- Requires vCenter with VMWare hosts and Satellite 6  

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install all products and setup vCenter as a compute resource. 

2. Provision a VM with Satellite, notice that the VM will be marked as Other 32-bit or Other 64-bit OS inside vCenter. 

3. Change this at the compute profile level (there is an OS list option) and save the compute profile. 

4. Reprovision a VM with the compute profile, you should see the new value inside vCenter. 

5. Note that RHEL7 is missing from the OS list. 

Actual results:

VM has Other 32bit/64 bit as its OS type inside vCenter.  

Expected results:

VM should have RHEL7 32/64 bit as its OS type inside vCenter.

Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.

I just tested this on Satellite 6.2.0 and can see the guest OS for RHEL7 32/64bit.
