    VM Template Patching

    ryany Rookie

      Hello,

       

      This might be more of a feature request or update, but would it be possible to build some additional logic in determining the OS Disk on a VM Template?

       

      I'm encountering a issue where a cloned template's vmtx file has the drives out of order, although the SCSI position is correct.


      Protect only looks at whatever vCenter interprets as "Hard Disk 1" regardless of actual SCSI position. If there's no OS on "Hard Disk 1" it will throw an error.

       

      Can we have the option to force Protect to scan the disk in SCSI 0:0 instead of relying on vCenter's interpretation of what is Hard Disk 1?
