Deleting Directories in Datastore Browser on ESXi

I have a directory I need to delete and the Datastore browser will not allow you to delete.

How do I delete without having OS level console login?

Normally its a simple "rm -rf <directory name>" but with ESXi, no can do. Matter of fact you couldn't delete a dir in ESX3.5 either using Datastore browser.

Might be nice to fix/provide this feature since ESXi has minimal options to do OS level stuff.

Did you select the directory in the right pane of datastore browser? Normally you can delete directories there.

Yeah, that's right I forgot you cannot delete on the left pane!

Doh!
