Rick Crisci demonstrates the configuration of a VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) data store, along with per-host disk group configurations.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll demonstrate…how to configure Virtual SAN.…But before we get into some of the details…of the actual configuration,…let's take a look at a few of the prerequisites…that we have to have configured…before we can enable VSAN on our cluster.…Let's go to Hosts and Clusters,…and take a look at the network configuration…of some of out ESXi hosts.…Here you can see we have four hosts in this cluster…and if I click on the first host,…I'm going to go to Manage, Networking,…and look at our VMkernel adapters.…
And here you can see, in this ESXi host,…we do have Vmkernel adapters that are configured…for a VSAN network.…Let's take a closer look at one of these VMkernel ports.…We can see that it's using the default TCP/IP stack,…and that Virtual SAN traffic has been enabled…on this VMkernel port.…And if we look though the settings,…we can see our physical adapter settings,…we can some of our IP version 4 settings,…like the IP address that's been configured…on this VMkernel port.…
So that's really step one,…
