Section Number and Name: 


Describe the issue: 

When the 3.6 cluster was setup on vsphere the conf file was "/etc/vsphere/vsphere.conf". After upgrading it to 3.9 (via 3.7) it gave errors.

The file path was changed to "/etc/origin/cloudprovider/vsphere.conf" and need to be added in the config files(master/node) also after the upgrade.

The change of path is not mentioned anywhere in the docs.

Suggestions for improvement: 

It would be great if these changes were mentioned in our docs, it will improve the quality.

Additional information: 

The changes are mentioned in the following git hub link:

Thank you Fatima for reporting this and adding notes. 
I have created two PR's for addressing this:

https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/pull/8800 - 
> this only applies to the enterprise3.6 branch and undoes the changes made by the commit specified in the request(https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/commit/b7d39663d15eb10f8f47f9ce39002ecf7d8e6974).


https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/pull/8801 - 
> This applies to branches 3.6 and up so that the added note shows up in version 3.6, 3.7, 3.9 and up.

Comment 9 Gaurav Nelson 2018-05-02 01:10:46 UTC
Thank you Jianwei Hou for reviewing this.

If you are approving both 
https://github.com/openshift/openshift-docs/pull/8800 and 

Can you please update the status as verified?

Comment 10 Gaurav Nelson 2018-05-02 04:31:03 UTC
Thank you Jianwei Hou for approving these changes.

I have separated the second PR, into two PRs because that note only needs to go into 3.7 branch and not 3.9 and 3.10. I will be merging this soon.
