Check whether a virtual machine uses a compatible datastore.

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.

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

Browse to the virtual machine.

a

Select a datacenter, folder, cluster, resource pool, or host.

b

Click the Related Objects tab and click Virtual Machines.

2

From the right-click menu, select All vCenter Actions > Storage Profiles > Check Storage Profile Compliance.

The system verifies the compliance.

3

Click the Summary tab for the virtual machine.

4

View the compliance in the VM Storage Profiles pane.

The Profile Compliance field in the VM Storage Profiles pane shows whether the virtual machine complies with the associated 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 non-compliant, check whether the virtual machine files or any of the virtual disks use incompatible storage. You can then migrate the files or virtual disks to a compliant datastore. See Monitor Storage Compliance for Virtual Machines in the vSphere Web Client.
