2018 at 19:23 Interesting, the guardrails doc says not to make changes to the default VSAN storage policy created by SDDC manager.
My interpretation of the admin guide is that it instructs you to change the default policy if you want erasure coding.

Marek says: 9 March, 2018 at 14:40 Hi, Follow up – you cannot change the default vSAN storage policy as configured by default during the bring-up phase by the SDDC manager.
You can however create a new vSAN policy based on your requirement s afterwards.
Just make sure your hardware is able to support it.
Hope this helps.
