Hi, Today i decided to enable manually vSAN 7.0 on vCenter 7.0 u3.
You can find more information about vSAN prerequisite from this page.
1- Before enable vSAN, We need to configure VMKernel adapters.
Login to your vCenter –> Select one host –> Configure Tab –> Under Networking select VMKernel adapters –> Select your VMKernel adaptor (vmk0 is my VMKernel) an click on Edit Setting
You must do this procedure for all your hosts.
Select vSAN then click on OK button.
2- Click on your vSAN Cluster, And select Configure Tab, Under Configure Tab select vSAN — > Services.
Click on CONFIGURE VSAN button to open the Configure vSAN wizard.
- 3- Select the type of vSAN cluster to configure, and click Next.
- Single site cluster.
- Single site cluster with custom fault domains.
- Two node vSAN cluster.
- Stretched cluster.
- vSAN HCI Mesh compute (Sharing Remote Datastores with HCI Mesh).
4- Configure the vSAN services to use, and click Next.
You can Configure data management features, including deduplication and compression, data-at-rest encryption, and data-in-transit encryption.
5- Claim disks for the vSAN cluster, and click Next.
Each host requires at least one flash device in the cache tier, and one or more devices in the capacity tier.
6- Review the configuration, and click Finish.
