As it turned out in the web version, this is a glitch, I opened version 5 through the client and expanded everything through an incore

Hi,

Go to the storage tab and select the datastore, then go to configure tab -> general and presss the increase button.

Now you go to storage tab and select the datastore, then go to configure tab -> general and presss the increase button.

Normally you shouldbe able to extend the datastore.

I've seen such issues with some recent vSphere versions, independent of the storage array used.

What helped was to run vmkfstools -V (not the upper case "V") on all hosts to rescan the storage.

You may want to run the command again on all hosts after increasing the datastore.

I encountered the same issues and now I could expand the disk. Thank you so much for your help

and if I have an array of ESXi servers. it will not hurt?

in this case, you need to go on and run on each server?
