Exactly the same

cd /vmfs/volumes/<datastore friendly name>

of, also check the location of the vritual disks, by inpsecting the Settings (Edit Setting) of the VM, and check the virtual disks added to the VM.

The summary for the VM, will always show the datastores that the VM is using for storage.
