    VM's not stroring swap file correctly

      Hi,

       

      I am running ESXI 6.5 update 3 (Build 15256549).

       

      I have noticed that the VM's are not storing their swap files in the datastore that I have set on the host, as shown below:

      For the VM's the settings have been set as:

      However the VM still keeps creating the swap file locally to itself, even of I user the Datastore specified by host.

       

      Any thoughts or ideas on why is occurring and the host setting not being used?

       

      Thanks
