Oops, we're sorry but something went wrong

undefined method `port' for #<RbVmomi::VIM::VirtualEthernetCardLegacyNetworkBackingInfo:0x00007f61dd1f2750>

Expected outcome:
VM objects are linked to Foreman hosts in order to control power operations.

#2

There is also an Foreman bug for this: Bug #20302: vCenter compute resource associate VMs error - Foreman

It looks like this issue has been fixed in later Foreman versions as I’m unable to reproduce the issue on my CentOS 7-based lab (Foreman 1.17.1, Katello 3.6.0).

Best wishes,
Christian.
