VMware: Support volumes backed by VStorageObject (FCD)

Registered by Vipin Balachandran on 2017-11-21

vSphere 6.5 introduced APIs to manage virtual disks (volumes) as first class objects. The new managed disk entity is called VStorageObject aka First Class Disk (FCD). The APIs to attach/detach volumes backed by VStorageObject are different from that required to attach/detach vmdk based volumes. We have to use the following APIs in VirtualMachine managed object (vSphere API) to attach/detach VStorageObject based volumes:

* Attach volume: VirtualMachine.AttachDisk_Task
* Detach volume: VirtualMachine.DetachDisk_Task
