Generally, you do not need to change the default multipathing settings your host uses for a specific storage device. However, if you want to make any changes, you can use the Edit Multipathing Policies dialog box to modify a path selection policy and specify the preferred path for the Fixed policy. You can also use this dialog box to change multipathing for SCSI-based protocol endpoints.
- Browse to the host in the vSphere Web Client navigator.
- Click the Manage tab, and click Storage.
- Click Storage Devices or Protocol Endpoints.
- Select the item whose paths you want to change and click the Properties tab.
- Under Multipathing Policies, click Edit Multipathing.
- Select a path policy.
By default, VMware supports the following path selection policies. If you have a third-party PSP installed on your host, its policy also appears on the list.
