You can use folders to group objects of the same type for easier management.

A folder can contain other folders, or a group of objects of the same type. For example, a single folder can contain virtual machines and another folder containing virtual machines, but it cannot contain hosts and a folder containing virtual machines.

Only virtual machine folders can be created in the vSphere Web Client.

1

In the Virtual Machines and Templates view of the vSphere Web Client inventory tree, select the parent location for the folder.

2

Click the All Actions icon (Show all actions) and select Inventory > New Folder.

3

Click the new folder, type the name for the folder, and press Enter.
