Hi Kanagaraj,

Thanks for filing these bugs.  For the VMware driver we can use a combination of the vCenter uuid and the id of the cluster which is managed by Nova.  I have already posted some comments on your patch for this: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/99623/

I am also +1 for adding an unique constraint for the hypervisor_hostname column.
