Storage device name identifier issue with special : character in it

Hi Community,

I am facing an issue with an SATA m.2 adapter that shows in the device list in the form:


As you might see, ther is a : before last F in the name.

I guess ESXi considers this as a partition delimiter, therefor, the device link is broken and no operations are possible (create DS for ex)

Does some expert should know if it is possible to rename/change this device ID to something supported ?
