Bug Description

By default VMWare doesn't provide information needed by udev to generate /dev/disk/by-id. Hence for instances spawned by Nova on ESX compute, there is no link in /dev/disk/by-id for SCSI (sdx) devices.
The property disk.EnableUUID needs to be enabled by default for instances spawned by Nova.

    VMware: Enable disk.EnableUUID=True in vmx

    Currently there is no link in /dev/disk/by-id for SCSI (sdx) devices
    because by default VMWare doesn't provide information needed by udev
    to generate /dev/disk/by-id. When this specific parameter disk.EnableUUID
    is set to True in vmx file inside the guest vm /dev/disk/by-id shows a
    link to UUID of the attached SCSI device
