Fabric administrators create vRealize Automation storage reservation policies to group datastores that have similar characteristics, such as speed or price. After you create the storage reservation policy, you then need to populate it with datastores before tenant administrators and business group managers can use the policy in a blueprint.

About this task

vCloud Director 5.5 does not allow a virtual machine to have disks in different storage tiers. For example, if you change the storage reservation policy for one volume in a vApp, vRealize Automation changes the storage reservation policy for all the volumes in that vApp. You cannot provision a virtual machine with volumes on different types of storage.

Prerequisites

Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator.
