Rick Crisci demonstrates how to create a data store cluster for storage DRS load balancing and how to place a data store into maintenance mode. He uses the vSphere Web Client for vCenter 6.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate how to create…a datastore cluster, and enable storage DRS.…And we'll start by clicking on the storage view.…And here you can see, we have three datastores…that currently exist.…One is a local datastore…called datastore one,…and then we have two shared datastores,…called datastore one and datastore two.…Datastore one and datastore two exist on a storage array…that is accessible to multiple ESXI hosts.…
So to get started, I'm going to right-click…on my training datacenter,…and under storage, I'm going to choose…new datastore cluster.…I'll call my datastore cluster…Demo D-S Cluster.…And I'm going to choose to turn on storage DRS,…or storage distributed restore scheduling.…And what storage DRS is going to do for us…is it's going to automatically…migrate virtual machines from one datastore to another,…for the purposes of load balancing.…
So there's two different storage DRS modes…that you can run in.…You can choose manual mode.…And in manual mode, storage DRS will not automatically…
