bosh-init vsphere install gives duplicate datastore error

Neil Watson

Deploying a new director on vsphere I get this error:

bosh install error: CPI 'create_vm' method responded with error: CmdError{"type":"Unknown","message":"Found more than one 'VimSdk::Vim::Datastore': {:name=\u003e\"datastore2\"}\n","ok_to_retry":false}

There are two datastores with the same name, but they are in separate vsphere datacenters. This suggests bosh's check is too vague. Is this a bug?
