associate VM - MAC compare is case senstive
Something that just caught me out, when associating a Xen VM with a foreman Host. The MAC comparison is case sensitive. I ended up with with the MAC in XenCenter recorded as "02:00:89:DE:AB:43" but the MAC recorded in Foreman as "02:00:89:de:ab:43", this caused the error 'No Host found to associate this vm with". Changing the MAC to be lower case is XenCentre solved the issue. It would be better if this comparison was case insensitive.

Just got hit with this with Vsphere, where MAC address has been set manually in vcenter using uppercase, and Foreman uses lowercase. Thus I cant associate the VM with the host in Foreman ("No host found to associate this VM with").
This is on RHEL7, Foreman 1.16.0.
