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

From the vSphere Web Client Home, click Rules and Profiles > VM Storage Profiles.

2

In the VM Storage Profiles view, select an existing storage profile and click the Edit a VM Storage Profile icon (Edit a vm storage profile icon.).

The Edit Profile dialog box opens.

3

Modify the storage profile and click OK.

Important

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

The virtual machine storage profile is now changed.
