Unable To Access User-Defined Storage Service

The problem lies in that the Web Client service conflicts with the Profile Driven Storage service.  I’m not sure if they use the same port numbers or if they just collide in memory space or something.  As long as the Web Client service is running, the Profile Driven Storage options cannot be configured on a Data Store.  The fix is somewhat simple:
1.  Open the Service console on your vCenter server.
2.  Find the VMware Web Client service.
3.  Stop or disable it.
4.  Restart VIClient.
