Hi,

Are you trying to expand the datastore from Vcenter web client.

If yes then please try to connect to host ui or direct web client and attempt the same thing.

Additionally, since the ESXi host adapter did detect the new size then you can alternatively try to use Growfs to increase datastore size via command line.

see KB:VMware Knowledge Base

Hope this resolve the issue.
