You can associate a storage reservation policy to a compute resource. After the storage reservation policy is created, populate it with datastores. A datastore can belong to only one storage reservation policy. Add multiple datastores to create a group of datastores for use with a blueprint.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.
  2. Point to a compute resource and click Edit.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. Locate the datastore to add to your storage reservation policy in the Storage table.
  5. Click the Edit icon (Edit) next to the desired Storage Path object.
  6. Select a storage reservation policy from the Storage Reservation Policy column drop-down menu.

    After you provision a machine, you cannot change its storage reservation policy if doing so would change the storage profile on a disk.

  7. Click the Save icon (Save).
  8. Click OK.
  9. (Optional) Assign additional datastores to your storage reservation policy.
