Description dmetzger 2019-07-19 17:44:45 UTC
Description of problem:

CloudForms does not support managing ESX hosts directly (there was partial support for this in the past), currently a user can add and ESX host directly as a provider but many things beyond the add will not work. This is a request to inhibit the addition of an ESX host directly as a provider.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
5.10 / 5.11

    Don't allow adding ESX hosts as VMware providers

    When validating credentials check that the entity that we are connected
    to is a vCenter server not an ESX host.
