      {}USER STORY:{}

      The assisted installer should be able to use CAPI-based vsphere installs without requiring access to vcenter.


      The installer makes calls to vcenter to determine the networks, which are required for CAPI based installs, but vcenter access is not guaranteed in the assisted installer.




      which were lovingly lifted from this slack thread.


      In cases where the installer calls vcenter to obtain values to populate manifests, the installer should leave empty fields (or a default value) if it is unable to access vcenter. It should produce partial manifests, rather than throw an error.

      {}Nice to have:{}



      Continued compatibility with agent installer, particularly producing capi manifests when access to vcenter fails.



      Any additional information that might be useful for engineers: related
      repositories or pull requests, related email threads, GitHub issues or
      other online discussions, how to set up any required accounts and/or
      environments if applicable, and so on.
