You can change the storage requirements for virtual machines and virtual disks by modifying the list of storage capabilities that are associated with a virtual machine storage profile.

1

In the VM Storage Profiles view of the vSphere Client, select an existing virtual machine storage profile from the inventory and click Edit VM Storage Profile.

The Edit VM Storage Profile dialog box opens.

2

Modify the virtual machine storage profile and click OK.

Edit the name.

Edit the description.

Select new storage capabilities that you want to include in the virtual machine storage profile.

Deselect storage capabilities that you want to exclude from the virtual machine storage profile.

Important

Excluding a storage capability might break the virtual machine storage profile compliance for a virtual machine, if the virtual machine or its disks use datastores with that capability.

The virtual machine storage profile is now changed.
