Hello,i'm using vSphere ESXi 6.0 and i try to rename my *.vmdk.
1. In the Webclient i rename the *.vmdk2. Then i remove my Hd and then i add the existing HD with the new Name.
This works fine.But when i do a storage vMotion the original *.vmdk file comes back.
Reason to rename the file:To set a file filter exclution for Simpana backup.
Thanks and RegardsDennis
When you do the storage vMotion all the related vmdk will be renamed with the vmname0.vmdk,vmname1.vmdk etc. that is the default behavior of storage vmotion.
