Hi Sorry what is this "rtename" ?   What I found is I can put in 1,500 GB  and then change to TB and it auto fills to just under 1.5TB 1.471etc

My question is really can you not use the decimal point when you size a drive in vcentre ? - is this by design for some reason?  thanks

Thanks Andrew yes 1500 gb works but my Question is why doesn't 1.5 Tb work or allow you to enter in like that is this normal the case for everyone? Thanks

vSphere Web Client full of little bugs!

the final HTML5 client, may have resolved this...otherwise it's one of VMware "By Design" niggles!
