You can change the name of an existing datastore.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client navigator, select vCenter Inventory Lists > Datastores
  2. Select the datastore to rename.
  3. Select Rename from the right-click menu.
  4. Type a new datastore name.

    The vSphere Web Client enforces a 42 character limit for the datastore name.


The new name appears on all hosts that have access to the datastore.
