You can change the name of an existing datastore.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client navigator, select Global Inventory Lists > Datastores.
  2. Right-click the datastore to rename, and select Rename.
  3. 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.
