Hi

With the joy that is vmx 10 and not being able to use the vsphere fat client to edit settings, I'm seeing the size of the the hard drive in the web client grayed out like the number of procs and memory.

How can you use the web client to expand the size of a hard drive?  Thank you.

Not quite true, VMware released a new VMware vSphere Client 5.5 U2, which you can edit virtual machine 8.0 features of a virtual machine version 10 with!

see here

Edit Virtual Hardware 10 VMs using vSphere 5.5 Update 2 C# Client

So you will no longer need to use the Web Client.

As for why it's grayed out, is it IDE, or does it have a snapshot.

Check my EE Article, to check if you have a VM on a snapshot disk

Hi

Thank you for the reply.  I downloaded the 5.5 U2 but still get the same error pop up but at least I can edit the settings.
