You can check whether a virtual machine uses storage that is compliant with all virtual machine storage profiles that are associated with it.

Before you check the profile compliance for a single virtual machine, ensure that the virtual machine has a virtual machine storage profile associated with it.

1

From the vSphere Client inventory, right-click a virtual machine and select VM Storage Profile > Check Profiles Compliance.

2

Select the Summary tab.

3

View the compliance in the VM Storage Profiles pane beside the Profiles Compliance text box.

The Profiles Compliance text box in the VM Storage Profiles pane shows whether the virtual machine files or its virtual disks comply with their associated virtual machine storage profile.

Compliance Status

Description

Compliant

The datastores used by the virtual machine files or the virtual disks have the storage capabilities that are required by the respective virtual machine storage profile.

Non-compliant

The datastores used by the virtual machine or the virtual disks do not have the storage capabilities that are required by the respective virtual machine storage profile. You can migrate the virtual machine files and its virtual disks to a compliant datastore.

If the status is noncompliant, read Check Storage Compliance with Virtual Machine Storage Profile to view whether the virtual machine files or any of the virtual disks use noncompliant storage. You can then migrate the files or virtual disks to a compliant datastore.
