A Storage Reservation Policy is created in Infrastructure -> Reservations -> Reservation Policies within vCAC. You can create any number of Storage Reservation Policies and assign them to an accessible Storage Path (one that is accessible to the Business Group’s Resource Reservation). SRP’s are assigned per storage volume, meaning you can assign different volumes (VMDK’s) to different policies for multi-tiering within an application.
– Step 1: Ensure all desired Storage Paths are enabled in the Reservation
– Step 2: Create the Storage Reservation Policy
– Step 3: Edit the Cluster Configuration (Infrastructure -> Compute Resources -> Compute Resources -> Configuration tab) to the assign a Storage Reservation Policy for each Storage Path
– Step 4: Enable the SRP by editing the Blueprint’s storage volumes. You can also select “Allow user to see and change storage reservation policies” to allow users to change this setting during provisioning.
