The current VMware "support" is not fully functional. I did some
testing and there are a few issues.

  1. Authentication doesn't work, and appears to require a .fog file. We
    need to integrate authentication into the UI.
  2. The model for the attributes and fields in vcenter don't seem to
    have a matching model and view in foreman's code.

Best as I can tell is that VMware support is a "WIP" (Work in
Progress), that needs someone familiar with VMWare and Rails to flesh
it out. I suspect for an experienced dev this is a week of work or two
of work to get functional, but part of the issue is that the most
experienced Foreman devs don't have access to VMWare test
