Unable to move template to a folder.

Hi,

I have created a 'VM and Template' Folder under Datacenter1. So my hierarchy looks like this:

VCenter

---Datacenter1

------VM Templates

---------myvmtemplate

However I want to create a folder and move the template to it as follows:

VCenter

---Datacenter1

------VM Templates

---MyFolder

------myvmtemplate

When I try to move the template I see the following structure available:

Datacenter1

---VM Folders

I do not see folder VCenter/MyFolder

I am sure it is there, but for some reason, the move screen in vCenter is not able to see any folder directly under VCenter.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Harshit

I'm pretty sure you must register hosts and vm s under a data center and that is why you don't see that folder. The only objects you could put in a root level folder are most likely Datacenters if you wanted to organize those.

Thanks a lot!

I am using a 3rd party tool to connect to vmware. There was a configuration issue in that tool.

Thanks,
