Verify datastore compliance with the mapped storage capability profile

Contributors netapp-manishc

You can quickly verify whether your datastores are compliant with the storage capability profiles that are mapped to the datastores.

What you will need

  • You must have registered your VASA Provider instance with ONTAP® tools for VMware vSphere (VSC).

  • VSC must have discovered your storage.


  1. From the ONTAP tools Home page, click Storage Mapping.

  2. Review the information in the Compliance Status column to identify non-compliant datastores and review the alerts for non-compliance reason.

    Note When you click the COMPLIANCE CHECK button, VSC performs a rediscovery operation for all of the storage, which might take few minutes.

    If a datastore is no longer compliant with its profile, then the Compliance Status column displays an alert stating the reason for non-compliance. For example, a profile might require compression. If that setting has been changed on the storage, compression is no longer used, and the datastore is non-compliant.

When you discover a datastore that is not compliant with its profile, you can modify the settings on the volume backing the datastore to make the datastore compliant, or you can assign a new profile to the datastore.

You can modify the settings from the Storage Capability Profile page.
