Enhance mount proxy selection in VMware GRE

Enhance mount proxy selection in VMware GRE

Brief description:

This idea is to enhance VMware GRE to display the mount proxy operating system and capabilities when selecting the Cell Manager and mount proxy. Pre-select the optimal mount proxy based on the VM type selected (e.g. select a Windows mount proxy if a Windows VM is selected) but allow the user to overwrite this recommendation.

Benefit:

Makes users aware of different mount proxy types known by a Cell Manager and different capabilities they provide. For example a Windows mount proxy only works with Windows file systems while a properly configured Linux mount proxy can handle Windows and Linux file systems (if required packages are installed).
