Today, Turbo imports DRS affinity and anti-affinity rules. These rules help customers keep VMs together, apart, or only on certain hosts.
Some customers (Facebook, NBC) use DRS's Virtual Machine Options to override DRS automation. This settings are different, and allow users to "disable" vmotion or keep vmotions "manual" when the default behavior for DRS is Fully Automated.
If a user is/was automating with DRS, Turbo should import these Virtual Machine Options and respect the customer's business policies. By not importing these settings, customers are not willing to automate placement decisions with Turbo since it doesn't respect their biz rules.
If a VM has an automation setting of "Disabled" then Turbo should create a dynamic group locating these VMs and disable placement actions. Similarly, if a VM has a setting of "Manual", a dynamic group should be created with placement set to Manual. Please see Zendesk Support tab for further comments and attachments.
