Categorize Storage Tiers in Business View

Does anyone know how to setup a category that will list the datastore names in Vcenter with a column showing the VM associated with it?

Hi Tyler,

Not sure I fully understand what you're trying to accomplish. Do you want to categorize datastores? Or create the report listing all VMs hosted on the particular datastore?

Thanks!

Actually I went ahead and created a global attribute on all of our vm's in vcenter and added the storage tier they are on to that attribute. I was spending too many man hours trying to get it to see the non custom attribute vcenter uses for the datastore name(which we have the tier reflected in) and have it listed as a category under the Virtual Machine view in Business View. So I'm good for now. Thank you for your reply to the post.
