|On the ESXi Hypervisor the button in the GUI is greyed out :(|

Correction. Does work. The VM was running. Sorry.
But. I found my error: no free diskspace on the volume

Just to add something:
make sure the target datastore is good enough to keep swap file. In my case, I had to choose the host's datastore instead of the VM's datastore for the swap file position.

|For one VM your Information was helpful, for the other with WIN2008R2 your information doesn't work although there are 450 GB free Diskspace. Any other ideas?|

it work! great.
But have issue while migrating the vm to other hosts. (putting the swap file on my internal datastore)

confirmed this worked, just added a subfolder called 'swap' to the original vm location and added the row as instructed.

Thanks for this, it's was a quick fix and saved my day ! and if you have more thank 1 disk. datastore name might be different.
In my case it's was /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/

1 via SSH connect to ESXI
2 Go to folder where system cant make swap file
3 make file on folder, but without last symbol (for example: echo " " > ./NAME_112axasx.vsw)
4 rename file to full name (for example: mv NAME_112axasx.vsw NAME_112axasx.vswp)
5 Power on VM.
