Configure VM Taging in vSphere 5.5

I have been asked to configure VM tagging in a way..like First I have to create  VMTags for Win 2003,Win2008 & Win2012.

Then i have to create 3 folders with name :Win 2003,Win2008 & Win2012.

Now i need to do compliance check in a way that vms with tag win2003 should go to win 2003 folder? VMs with tag win2008 should go to folder win2008.

Please confirm ,how we can configure it using Vi /Web client ?

No, yuu first must explicitly select folder, and only when vm is completely created you can add tags.

sorry didnt get you. is that mean we can not move vms with tag name win2k3 to folder win 2k3 ?

here first i created vm tag named win 2k3 then created folder win 2k3..then can we do some config if vms with tag win2k3 should go to folder win2k3 or if already there ,it should be  compliment if win2k3 tag vm is there in win2k3 folder?

You can script it. i.e create all vms in root folder, then nightly script checks installed OS and drops them in proper places.

You must script it.

Machines are created with OS type present
Then you can add tags.

i'd put my sentiment on maintaining directories based on OS type.
