Description of problem:
Further to CFME-5.8/5.9 PR: "Remove Host name uniqueness check and retry-loop" https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/pull/15795
that fix bug 1511030.
We have a situation now that the hosts/Datastores and maybe other components as well are displayed in the UI with the same name, and there is no visible way to identify to which provider they belong to (which is required from time to time).
It is not visible neither in the Hosts/Datastores pages (in any view type), nor in the Host/Datastore details (summary) page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Have providers added to CFME that contain Hosts/Datastores with same names.
The Hosts/Datastores with same names should have additional marking of the provider they belong to, to allow user to identify them.
This additional marking can be in the Hosts\Datastores list pages (Which seem best IMO), or when entering the Host/DataStore details page, adding provider field.

If the problem is specifically hosts/datastores with the same name I don't think adding which provider they're on is going to solve this because you can have hosts and datastores with the same name on a single provider. Additionally datastores don't belong to a single provider but can potentially be used by many.
Some way of being able to see which provider a host/vm belongs to on the global list sounds like a reasonable request, though this is more of a UI/UX request since the data is available in the backend already.
