Foreman 1.5.3, vsphere 5.5. Created a compute profile which has 8 disks. ESX logs an error saying:

"The specified parameter was incorrect, Unit num"

Looking at this it appears from https://communities.vmware.com/message/2030767

that the id #7 is reserved for the SCSI controller and should be skipped. (Disk numbers start at 0).
