Jake , 

Can you tell me how have you set up your environment for Cloudstack ?  Is it a developer's
environment ?  If yes , then you must have cloned the cloudstack repository which contains
all the source code files . You should be able to find that file in the path I mentioned previously.

Gotcha, you might want to check out the source code and find what Pranav was talking about.
You'll have to modify more code if you want things like security groups to work... OR file
a feature request. I don’t believe this behavior exists 'out of the box'.
