Room for improvement:
Slide notes provide instructions about how to configure a new VMFS datastore:
- Select your host in the Host and Clusters view.
- Click the Manage tab and select the Storage link.
- Select Actions and New Datastore.
Besides being formally correct, the list includes a few steps which are not compulsory: in order to be able to access the New Datastore task, it is not mandatory to navigate to the Host and Clusters view.
It is possible to leverage the New Datastore option within the Actions menu from wherever in the vSphere Web Client GUI, provided the target host has been selected in either the Host and Clusters view or the Inventory Lists tree.
