Editing a VVol datastore

You can edit an existing virtual volume (VVol) datastore to change the default storage capability profile. The default storage capability profile is primarily used for Swap VVols.


  1. From the vSphere Client page, click Hosts and Clusters.
  2. Right-click the datastore, and then select NetApp VSC > Edit Properties of VVol Datastore.
    The Edit Properties of VVol Datastore dialog box is displayed.
  3. Make the required changes.
    You can change the default storage capability profile for the VVol datastore by selecting a new profile from the drop-down list in the Edit VVol Datastore dialog box. You can also change the VVol datastore name and description.
    Note: You cannot change the vCenter Server where the VVol datastore is located.
  4. When you have made your changes, click OK.
    A message box asks whether you want to update the VVol datastore.
  5. Click OK to apply your changes.
    A success message appears to inform that the VVol datastore has been updated.
