Error replicating VMs with SATA controllers

ISSUE

There is a problem in ReliableDR 3.x earlier versions replicating CD drives with SATA controllers.

The SATA controllers for CD drives are the default ones in new VMs with virtual hardware 10 version.

To avoid this problem there are two workarounds for this:

1)     During the VM creation select and IDE controller for the CD drive.

2)     Edit VM settings and change the device controller for the CD drive.

Of course the problem is also solved by editing the VM settings and deleting the CD drive before launching a new Replica.
