Did you select Add datastore ? and Create a datastore on your RAID6 array ?

Please see my EE Article, and Step 3.

Okay, I found it and have now added the datastore:

FSVM1 Type: VMFS6 Location: /vmfs/volumes/5a988e17-6f20fc5e-90eb-98f2b329f3fc UUID: 5a988e17-6f20fc5e-90eb-98f2b329f3fc
Hosts: 1 Virtual Machines: 0

3. Conducting a simple task using the VMware vSphere Client

In this step, we will complete a simple task using the VMware Host Client, this task is to Create a new VMFS datastore, so we can store VMs. This is the minimum configuration requirement for your ESXi host.

Select and Click Storage
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Will this datastore include all three VMs, therefore should I include all available space? Temporarily I include 400GB.

Yes, include all the space, this datastore will be used for all your VMs.
