vdport group defaults

Is there a way to change the defaults for security Teaming and failover polices? These defaults were handled by the vSwitch in 3.5 and inherited by each new port group. the dvuplinks object has these areas grayed out and these policy settings do not show up under the VDS object. The defaults for teaming, load balance, failover, active uplinks are not the desired settings and each of our port groups will maintain consistent defaults so if we can set these defaults port group creation will be similar to 3.5.

thanks

The UI does not provide a way to change the vDS defaults globally. You can change the Teaming and Failover policies for each port group separately.

Please also note you can only set Teaming and Failover policies on a port group, not on dvUplink port group.
