    Quiesce I/O on all disks involved. Is this we have to do manually or is this is happened automatically?

    Hi RanjnaAggarwal

    I think we have to do it manually .

    I think that this text from a slide in the Install, Configure and Manage vSphere 5 is a bit strange. I have not seen this in any manual regarding expanding VMFS datastores and there is really no way (that I am aware) that it is possible to somewhat quiesce all VMs on a datastore at the exact moment when the VMFS partition is expanded.
