Description of problem:
When I specified Datastore config in compute profile it is not used when creating a VMware VM. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.6 snap 18

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create compute resource for vcenter
2. Create Compute profile tied to a Datastore (mine happened to be a local esxi datastore). 
3. Create host group with compute profile (dont think this is required)
4. Create VM with hostgroup

Actual results:
Storage config does not appear in "Virtual Machine" tab and when the I press submit the following error occurs:
Failed to create a compute toledovcenter (VMware) instance InvalidDatastorePath: Invalid datastore path '[datastore1]'.

Expected results:
VM is created on data store. 

Additional info:
Screen recording here

Also, I created a host manually and specified the datastore in the "VM" tab directly and I was able to create the VM.
