    I beg to differ.. I found the following info using the link YOU posted..
    on page 34 it says.. http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/topic/com.vmware.ICbase/PDF/vsphere-storage-appliance-10-admin.pdf

    View Information About a VSA Datastore
    You can view information about a VSA datastore, such as capacity, network settings, exported volume and its
    replica.
    The number of VSA datastores matches the number of ESXi hosts that are in the VSA cluster.
    Procedure
    1 In VSA Manager tab, select the Datastores view.
    Information about shared datastores appears under the View area.
    2 View information about all datastores in the table.
    Column Description
    Name View the name of the datastore.
    Status View the status of the datastore.
    n Online – the datastore and its replica are online.
    n Offline – the datastore and its replica are offline.
    n Degraded – the replica of the datastore is offline.
    Capacity View the total capacity that each datastore has.
    Free View the available space on the datastore.
    Used View the space of the datastore that is currently in use.
    Exported By View the VSA virtual machine that manages the datastore.
    Datastore Address View the IP address of the datastore that vSphere Storage Appliance exposes.
    Each ESXi host uses this IP address to read and write data on the datastore.
    Datastore Netmask View the netmask of the subnet that the datastore uses.

    i believe you were indicating the VSA for Appliances option.. not the Datastores…
