Datastore size and free space do not update when VMware Infrastructure Client is connected to VirtualCenter (1002273)
- After deleting files from a VMFS datastore, the amount of available free space does not increase in VMware Infrastructure (VI) Client when it is connected to VirtualCenter
- When VI Client is connected directly to the ESX host, the amount of free space increases immediately
This issue is resolved in VirtualCenter 2.0.2 and later.
Prior to VirtualCenter 2.0.2, it can take up to several minutes for changes to be propagated from ESX hosts to VirtualCenter.
