You can select a default storage policy for the VMs that are instantiated from a vApp template.


This operation requires the rights included in the predefined vApp Author role or an equivalent set of rights.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Libraries and in the left panel, select vApp Templates.
    The list of templates appears in a grid view.
  2. Click the vApp template name, select the Virtual Machines tab, and select a VM name.
  3. On the General tab, scroll down to the Storage section and click Edit.
  4. Select a default organization VDC storage policy for the VMs that are instantiated from this template.
    If the selected default storage policy is enabled in the organization VDC in which you want to instantiate a VM, the selected storage policy becomes the default for the VM. If the selected storage policy is not available in the organization VDC or if you select None, the VM instantiates with the default storage policy for the organization VDC.
  5. Click Save.
