I have a esxi 6.0 server setup in my lab with 2 physical drives in it.
Datastore1 = 500GB & Datastore2 = 1TB
I am trying to create a new VM with a 2 virtual disks. The 1st vdisk is 20GB and will exist with the vm machine files on Datastore1 The 2nd vdisk is 500GB and will be on Datastore2.
If I use the "old" vSphere thick client with the above detailed configuration it creates the VM exactly as it should. However when trying to create it using the vSphere web client the 2nd vdisk is created on Datastore1 even though Datastore2 is selected as the destination. Likewise if I select to create vdisk1 on Datastore2 and attempt to put vdisk2 on Datastore1 it creates both on Datastore2.
It would seem that it only allowing me to create vdisk's on the same datastore as where the VM machine files are being stored along with the primary vdisk.
I've heard that the 6.0 vSphere web client has some bugs in it, but I can't find anyone else reporting this odd behavior which I find surprising if it were a bug.
Has anyone seen this before or knows if there is a setting I've missed somewhere to allow virtual disks to be created on a different datastore from where the VM machine files & primary vdisk is?
