VMware driver domain metadata

Registered by Gary Kotton on 2014-12-11

Metadata will be recorded in the Vmware instance config spec to provide
information about the Nova instance that the domain corresponds to. The aim
is to provide information that can be useful to administrators troubleshooting
compute hosts.

This is the same as the libvirt support - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/libvirt-driver-domain-metadata
The config spec has a filed call 'annotation' that enables the admin to perform searches.

Approving this, as it doesn't need a spec, and doesn't seem worth using up meeting time. Never got raised during kilo, but seems worth having. --johnthetubaguy 13 April 2015

I am guessing, but this looks like it is complete now. --johnthetubaguy 15th July 2015
