Description

It seems that values set in vmm_exec_vcenter.conf are not read by the driver. In particular NIC model only uses that on the VM definition.

Moreover XML drivers should use XML syntax for the defaults.

I reproduced it, using OpenNebula 5.1.80.

Changing the /etc/one/vmm_exec/vmm_exec_vcenter.conf file content from NIC=[MODEL="VirtualE1000"] to NIC=[MODEL="virtualvmxnet3"] does not causes effect.

The network driver continue as "VirtualE1000"

Defaults could be stored in a new file under /etc/one called vcenter_driver.default would be used in the same way for Azure and EC2. E.g to set a default NIC model like VMXNET3 the following file would be used:

<VM>
<TEMPLATE>
<NIC>
<MODEL>vmxnet3</MODEL>
</NIC>
</TEMPLATE>
</VM>

So far I've tested successfully this defaults on vCenter 6 configuring the NIC model if it's not already set on the VM template.
