If your ESXi host uses SCSI-based transport to communicate with protocol endpoints representing a storage array, you can modify default multipathing policies assigned to protocol endpoints. Use the Edit Multipathing Policies dialog box to change a path selection policy.


  1. Browse to the host in the vSphere Web Client navigator.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Click Protocol Endpoints.
  4. Select the protocol endpoint whose paths you want to change and click the Properties tab.
  5. Under Multipathing Policies, click Edit Multipathing.
  6. Select a path policy.
    • Fixed (VMware)
    • Most Recently Used (VMware)
    • Round Robin (VMware)
  7. For the fixed policy, specify the preferred path.
  8. Click OK to save your settings and exit the dialog box.
