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.


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


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


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