In an environment with multiple availability zones, change the vSAN default storage policy of the management cluster in Region A back to its original configuration after the SDDC failback is complete. In this way, vSAN can provision management virtual machines by using the stretched cluster capabilities again.You perform this operation only when multiple availability zones are configured in your environment.
