Working with Storage Profiles
In order for the storage capabilities to be recognized and reported the user must create a profile, and assign the
capability desired to said profile using the check box supplied with the corresponding system-defined capability. This
will allow the System Defined capabilities to be associated with the datastore and then displayed properly.

From the vSphere Client Home window, select VM Storage Profiles.
Click Enable VM Storage Profiles.
In the Summary tab under Commands, click Create VM Storage Profile.
In the Create New VM Storage Profile Properties window, enter the properties for the new profile and click Next.
