On the Compute Profile using Compute Resource VMware I can select "Add cdrom drive" but when storing the Profile it is not saved, so opening the Compute Profile again the box is unchecked and also using it while creating a Host requires always to check the box again. Using boot disk based provisioning it requires to remember always to check this box or if you forget to delete and recreate the host.

Installation is Foreman 1.18.0, Compute Resource VMware, Bootdisk and Column View Plugin.

The issue is interestingly not in the fact we wouldn't save the add_cdrom value. It's cause by the fact the checkbox is named add_cdrom, which we then turn into "cdrom" in fog attributes. When we redraw the compute profile form, it does not detect add_cdrom is set to 1, therefore it remains unchecked. The same applies when we enter new host form, after choosing compute profile, the checkbox simply remains unchecked.

Dirk, it would be great if you could test the PR and let us know if it fixes the issue for you.

Thanks, Marek.
