    TonyJK Expert



      We are using ESXi 6.


      When I browse a datastore, I find that there are some folders that doesn't created for Virtual Machines.


      May I seek your advice what are those folders for

      1) .naa.xxxx

      2) .vSphere-HA

      3) vmkdump ?


      From my understaning, vmkdump is for ESXi Host dump files when it crashes.  How an ESXi Host choose which datastore to store its dump ?  Can I find out which ESXi Host is using this folder ?
