You can provision virtual machines on a vVols datastore.
A virtual machine that runs on a vVols datastore requires an appropriate VM storage policy.
After you provision the virtual machine, you can perform typical VM management tasks. For information, see the vSphere Virtual Machine Administration documentation.
- Define a VM storage policy for vVols.
VMware provides a default No Requirements storage policy for vVols. If you need, you can create a custom storage policy compatible with vVols.
- Assign the vVols storage policy to the virtual machine.
To guarantee that the vVols datastore fulfills specific storage requirements when allocating a virtual machine, associate the vVols storage policy with the virtual machine.
- Change default storage policy for a vVols datastore.
For virtual machines provisioned on vVols datastores, VMware provides a default No Requirements policy. You cannot edit this policy, but you can designate a newly created policy as default.
