vmware dynamic inventory naming collision #55137
Possible name collision within the vmware dynamic inventory plugin.
Currently the inventory name is the vmname concatenated with it's uuid. But neither the name nor the uuid is guaranteed to be unique (both can be set arbitrarily). The only thing that is unique, is the full folder path including the vm name. Within a single folder, it is not allowed (and not possible) to have two vms with identical name.
Currently this pr is a draft, as it slows down the inventory plugin enormously.
