In this video, learn how to configure a group of ESXi hosts as a cluster and enable vSAN 6.7 to create a shared vSAN datastore.
- [Instructor] In this video, … I'll show you how to create a vSAN cluster. … So, in the last video, you saw that we validated … the network configuration of our existing host cluster. … Here in the VMware Hands-On Lab environment. … And so now, I just basically need to turn vSAN on. … So here, under Host and Clusters, … I've clicked on this cluster that already exists. … And before we get to vSAN, … let's take a look at high availability. … vSphere High Availability is currently turned off, … that's good. … If I were to try to enable vSAN on a cluster … where high availability was turned on … I would need to start by turning off host monitoring. … That would be step one. … So if I'm in a cluster where HA is already enabled, … I'd have to actually go ahead and disable host monitoring … because, remember, with HA the management network … is used for heartbeats normally, … but, if I enable vSAN, … now the vSAN network is going to be used for heartbeats. … So, just to kind of review the process here, …
