Setting virtual disk defaults

Setting virtual disk defaults

You can adjust the default settings for virtual disks. This may be useful to you if you are configuring a large number of disks in a standard way. 

In the Virtual Disk Manager, select Set Defaults from the Options menu, then click on Vdisk Parameters to set the default values for the different virtual disk types.
