You can change the name of an existing datastore.

Browse to Datastores in the vSphere Web Client navigator. See Display Datastore Information in the vSphere Web Client.


Right-click the datastore to rename.


Select Rename from the right-click menu.


Type a new datastore name.

The vSphere Web Client enforces a 42 character limit for the datastore name.

The new name appears on all hosts that have access to the datastore.
