Enhance VMware - History Extractor to use Blacklist/Whitelist file path

Currently the VMware - vCenter and ESX Server History Extractor only supports an import filter Blacklist file path.


If a VMware - vCenter Extractor Service ETL is using an import filter Blacklist/Whitelist file path and specifically a regular expression to include and exclude VMs then it is not possible to use the History Extractor to recover missing data.


The documented method of adding the UUIDs of the systems to exclude is impractical when there are thousands of VMs being excluded by the regular expression.


Having similar functionality between the Service and History Extractors would make data recovery much easier.
