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.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the host.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Under Storage, 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.

    The path policies available for your selection depend on the storage vendor support.

    • Fixed (VMware)

    • Most Recently Used (VMware)

    • Round Robin (VMware)

  7. For the fixed policy, specify the preferred path.
  8. To save your settings and exit the dialog box, click OK.
