Hide Boot Local Storage

Greetings All,

I have reached a point with a recent upgrade that I have about 50 hosts between a few clusters in vSphere.  We also do Boot from SAN as the hosts have no local storage.  All of the Local SAN Boot Datastores shows up in the Datastores list where I have put it all in a folder to keep it out of view.  The annoyance i am now running into is that whenever I deploy a new server, I of course have all 50 of these Boot Datastores showing up in the list muddying up what I am really looking for.  Is it possible to hide these Datastores?  I am never going to actually deploy a server into them.  They are only 10GB each in size and all they hold is the ESX Host Software.

Thanks for any assistance?

I'm not sure how to or if you can hide datastores. I usually put a number and a hyphen next to datastores I want at the top. Like 1-LUNx-VMx-Data. You might be able to do something like z-BootLUNx-Hostx to move it to the bottom.
