Where can i find the location of new created virtual machine in ESXi5

Where can i find the default location of new created virtual machine in ESXi5 ?

in vmware work station, it looks like it is at my document by default. So, if i want to make second virtual machine, i can just copy it. but in ESXi 5, I cannot find it. Anyone can tell me ? thank you.

Right click on that VM, go to Edit Settings and select Hard Disk 1 and in the right hand side pane you can see full path under Disk File.

In VI client, go to the virtual center then select Permissions tab in right pane and you can modify permissions from there. I am not sure what's happening in your case but it may help you to troubleshoot.
