Applying Policies - What wins?

Blog Post created by raddon24 on Feb 22, 2018



Please could somebody clear up what policy wins when i have more than one policy applied to a VM. For example, i have just created a Group. This group contains 2 vms that require vcpu increase. I have assigned a policy to this group that automates resize up however it has been overruled by a policy that assigns Resize Up to recommend. This policy is assigned at 'Migrated Policy: Settings::Virtual Machines By PM Cluster'.


Also, I have enabled non-disruptive mode in the 'Resize Up' policy previously discussed. Does this cause the VMs to be non-disruptive for all actions or just the Resize Up action in that specific policy. If so, how do i apply a non-disruptive mode to a specific task such as Resize Up?
