ESXi 5.1.0 - Change datastore of a VMware Client from one datastore to another.
We have added a NAS drive as "datastore4" in the Management Console. We would like to change the datastore of one of our VMs from it's current datastore of "datastore1" to "datastore4" . How is that accomplished?

Do you just have a standalone server?
You will need to "cut and paste"
