Inconsistency with SCSI disk controllers on ESXi. In a template, Abiquo should not persist a value for a secondary hard disk after it is detached. Explanation: Abiquo only supports one SCSI controller on ESXi. If the primary hard disk controller is null, and the secondary hard disk controller is set, Abiquo should use the secondary controller. But it should not persist this value for the primary disk if a secondary disk is detached
