1. Proposed title of this feature request
[RFE] Auto select datastore while provisioning the host in VMware.
2. What are the nature and description of the request?
When we create a compute profile, Satellite recognizes the datastore cluster, But then it ask us to select a datastore. The customer feels that the datastore should be selected based on VMWare's storage recommendation at the time of the VM build. That's the whole point of the datastore cluster - Cu should be able to provision 100 VMs at a time and not have to worry about filling up single datastore. Satellite should negotiate with VMWare to evenly distribute the VMs. Cu don't want to configure different compute profile for each datastore. He wants to use a single compute profile where it negotiates for datastore to avoid manual work.
3. Why does the customer need this?
Tie the compute profile only to a datastore cluster so we do not need multiple profiles.
Satellite should then negotiate the target datastore with vSphere at the time of building a host.
Make Satellite provisioning aware of vSphere Storage DRS to support the above.
4. How would the customer like to achieve this?
Customer want to achieve this from WebUI or API
5. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?
Not that I'm aware of.
8. Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release
Sooner is better.
9. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?

Upstream bug assigned to szadok
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/4509 has been resolved.
Build:Satellite 6.4.0 snap21
Created a Host with Storage Pod, that is a data-store cluster
When we select the storage pod we can no more select the data-store and host will automatically be provisioned in the data-stores that are present in Storage pod by Vmware cluster Policy.

Automatically the datastore for the storage of the host is selected based on Vmware policy
