ONTAP tools for VMware vSphere 9.12
A newer release of this product is available.

Verify datastore compliance with the mapped storage capability profile


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.

  • ONTAP tools 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, ONTAP tools 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.
