From what I can tell, the WMware ruby library Foreman uses does already support this, but it’s not in Foreman’s code yet, though 3.9 ships with the latest version of rbvmomi2.
I create an issue for this as well as a PR. Would you be able to test my patch, since I do not have a VCenter 8 around to test this myself?


Sure thing! I will be more then happy to test it!

Thanks for your feedback, it’s already merged. :+1:
I guess it will land in 3.11., until then you can use the patch directly.

I think it is trivial to backport this and it would totally make sense to have users not to wait for this (or require them to patch).
As I do not remember where I would correctly flag this for backporting, I cc @ekohl who knows this for sure.


On a similar note, maybe Fixes #36023: Add missing VMWare GuestOS mappings by Areyus · Pull Request #10092 · theforeman/foreman · GitHub would be worth backporting as well?
