For ESXi, you can modify disks as permitted by ESXi functionality. See VMware knowledge base article. You can only modify iSCSI disks on SCSI controllers with thin provisioning. And the VM cannot have VMware snapshots. If you cannot modify a hard drive as expected, please contact your System Administrator.

For SCSI disks, you cannot modify disk size and position at the same time

Size

You can increase the size of the hard disk

  • Expanding a disk can damage the data or operating system installed on the disk. You may need to apply additional operating system tools or processes before you can use an expanded disk

You cannot modify the Allocation type after the VM has been deployed
