Change the SCSI Bus Sharing Configuration in the vSphere Client (Not Webclient)

You can set the type of SCSI bus sharing for a virtual machine and indicate whether the SCSI bus is shared. Depending on the type of sharing, virtual machines can access the same virtual disk simultaneously on the same server or on any server.

You can change the SCSI controller configuration for a virtual machine on an ESXi host only.
