Create a file pool policy from a template

You can create a new file pool policy from a policy template. The templates are pre-configured for typical work flows, such as archiving older files or managing virtual machines (.vmdk files).


  1. Click File System > Storage Pools > File Pool Policies.
    The File Pool Policies tab provides two lists: File Pool Policies and Policy Templates.
  2. In the Policy Templates list, next to the template name that you want to use, click View/Use Template.
    The View File Pool Policy Template Details dialog box opens.
  3. Click Use Template.
    The Create a File Pool Policy dialog box opens.
  4. Required: Specify a policy name and description, and modify any of the policy settings.
  5. Click Save Changes.


The new custom policy is added to the File Pool Policies list directly above the default policy.
