This is not available by design.
Can you explain the use case, why do you need to use local storage as
your primary data storage?
How are you going to migrate your vms if the primary storage is local?
How are you going to start the vms on another host after host failures,
if the vm storage is on the failed host, and the last state of that disk
is not available or even lost?
