    ESXi 6.5 Host Client & Disk Resizing

    TrophyWife Novice

      I've Googled for this and I can't Google anymore....

       

      A simple action back in 5.5 appears to have problems now that I have upgrade most of the standalone ESXi servers to 6.5:

       

      Live Resizing of Disks - aka resize without shutting down the VM.

       

      ESXi 6.5 Build 5224529 (1 version old):

       

      VM version 11 (6.0 VM)

      Host Client - Cannot change size numerical value. Greyed out. CAN change UNIT: MB, GB, TB, etc.

      Thick Client - CAN change both.

       

      VM version 13 (6.5 VM)

      Host Client - Cannot change size numerical value. Greyed out. CAN change UNIT: MB, GB, TB, etc.

      Thick Client - Won't open Edit Settings at all.

       

      All disks Thick, lazy zeroed

      No snapshots

      Size of disks less than 2TB. Often as small as 60GB.

       

      What am I missing? Is this a bug? VMware wants to move to the host client, but I can't do basic tasks I used to be able to do.
