for VMware compute resource (fog) give the option to add a cd drive to the created host
In essence it is to add a virtual cd drive to a created vm via fog on vmware (possible others aswell). Reason is so a bootdisk created via the foreman_bootdisk plugin, however a host created via foreman default does not have a cd/dvd drive.
Via foreman_hooks the generation of this disk can already be done and possibly also transfered to the vmware host, but I can not seem to get the inclution of the cd drive at build to work on my own.

Zak, that's not strictly needed, I'm using OS packages for VMware Tools all the time and as it turned out, that's even 100% supported by VMware. If you want, I can share my puppet and provisioning snippets for that.
I know its not ideal but I'm currently installing VMware tools manually from VM console which does require the CD.
Automating the install is something that still needs to be done so I'm definetaly interested in what you can provide. My contact information is available in my profile.
