In this video, Russ Long talked about the cluster requirements of running a DRS cluster. Learn how to determine if your vSphere environment is able to run DRS in a cluster.
- [Instructor] Now before we start checking boxes…and implementing features we need to understand…basic minimums that are required to even run DRS.…DRS requires a shared storage solution.…Shared storage allows for more than one host…to connect to the same set of discs.…Our shared storage solution is usually a SAN or even a NAS,…although that is rarely used…in an enterprise shared storage solution environment.…Performance to the shared storage devices…are incredibly important to a cluster.…
Make sure that any latency issues or any other problems…in the storage area network…has been minimized prior to a DRS implementation.…DRS also requires the discs of a VM…reside on a VMFS volume,…or a data store.…These data stores must be able to be reached…from the original host and the host…where a virtual machine may migrate to.…This makes a lot of sense,…if a host can't communicate with the data store…it can't access the file…and if it can't access the data store…it's trying to move the virtual machine to,…the virtual machine file cannot be delivered there.…
