Rick Crisci demonstrates how to create a new VMFS data store on a discovered LUN.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll demonstrate the process…of creating a new VMFS data source…on a iSCSI storage array.…So, let's start by clicking on Hosts and Clusters,…and we'll look at exsi01.vclass.local.…And in this particular exsi host,…we've already configured a software iSCSI initiator.…Let's take a look under the Manage tab,…and Storage.…We can see that we've got an iSCSI software adapter,…and that iSCSI software adapter…has been configured with network port binding…to associate it with a VMkernal port.…
It's been configured with dynamic discovery…so that it will find out about LUNs…from this particular storage array.…And as a result,…there are a number of LUNs that are listed here,…and these LUNs are all available…to create new datastores.…So, let's go ahead and create a datastore.…I'm going to click on the Storage view,…and we'll right-click the Training Data Center.…And under the Storage menu we'll choose New Datastore.…
The location of the datastore will be…in the Training Virtual Data Center.…We'll create a VMFS datastore on a LUN.…
