The python-pyvmomi package for CentOS 7/RHEL 7 is available in EPEL.
On CentOS 7 EPEL repo can by added by runing

yum install epel-release

For RHEL 7 see

Does it work when the EPEL repo was added to your system?

I installed a fresh Redhat 8.1 to test bareos vmware pluging. I ran in the same issue running
yum install bareos-vmware-plugin
 Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job
  - nothing provides python-pyvmomi needed by bareos-vmware-plugin-19.2.7-2.el8.x86_64
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

So far I tried to install
python-pyvmomi with pip3.6 install pyvmomi -> Installed successful, no luck
Downloaded the github package and did a python3.6 install, this install the version 7.0, no luck
Addding epel -> yum install python3-pyvmomi, this install version 6.7.3-3, no luck with the yum

Downloading the rpm (19.2.7-2) and trying manually, it did the requirement:
yum install python2
yum install bareos-filedaemon-python-plugin
yum install bareos-vadp-dumper
Did a pip2 install pyvmomi, still no luck
python2 install, installed a bunch of files under python2.7, still no luck for the rpm

At this point, I will just do a --nodeps and see if it work, hope this help resolving the package issue
