Storage DRS Integration with Storage Policy in vCenter Server 6.x

As everyone knows storage policy concept is not new in vCenter Server version 6, it is available in the previous versions of vSphere. In vCenter version 6.0b and above, storage DRS can be configured to enforce the storage policies. This integration can be done with storage DRS cluster advanced option "EnforceStorageProfiles". This advance option can be configured with one of these integer values:-
0 (Default) = This means no storage policy enforcement on the SDRS Cluster.
1 (Soft) = This means storage policy soft enforcement on SDRS Cluster. It's similar like DRS Soft rules. SDRS comply with storage policy in the optimum level. If required, SDRS will violate the storage policy compliant.
2 (Hard) = This means storage policy hard enforcement on SDRS Cluster. It's similar like DRS Hard rules. SDRS will not violate the storage policy compliant.
