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. In the vSphere Client, navigate to the ESXi 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, select Edit Multipathing from the Actions menu.
  6. Select a path policy and configure its settings. Your options change depending on the type of a storage device you use.
    The path policies available for your selection depend on the storage vendor support.
  7. To save your settings and exit the dialog box, click OK.
