For virtual machines provisioned on Virtual Volumes datastores, VMware provides a default No Requirements policy. You cannot edit this policy, but you can designate a newly created policy as default.


Create a storage policy compatible with Virtual Volumes.


  1. Browse to the Virtual Volumes datastore whose default storage policy you want to change.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Under Settings, click General.
  4. Click Edit in the Default Storage Policy pane.
  5. From the list of available storage policies, select a policy to designate as the default and click OK.


The selected storage policy becomes the default policy for the Virtual Volumes datastore. vSphere assigns this policy to any virtual machine objects that you provision on the Virtual Volumes datastore when no other policy is explicitly selected.
