Host-local swap allows you to specify a datastore stored locally on the host as the swap file location. You can enable host-local swap for a standalone host.
- In the vSphere Client, select the host in the inventory.
- Click the Configuration tab.
- Under Software, select Virtual Machine Swapfile Location.
- Select Store the swapfile in the swapfile datastore.
- Select a local datastore from the list and click OK.
Host-local swap is now enabled for the standalone host.
