The name you enter is used as the virtual machine’s display name in the inventory. It is also used as the name of the virtual machine’s files.

The name can be up to 80 characters long. This name must be unique within the folder. Names are case-insensitive: the name my_vm is identical to My_Vm.


In the Name and Location screen of the New Virtual Machine wizard, enter a name.


Select a folder or the root of the datacenter.


Click Next.
