Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Demo: DRS, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate…how to configure…DRS on an ESXi host cluster.…Here you can see my cluster…and it currently contains two ESXi hosts…and one of the really critical things…that I've already set up in advance here…is on my ESXi hosts, I've actually…set up a VMotion network.…If we go to each host, we look at the configure option…and we go to our virtual switches.…Here, we can see on both hosts…I have a port group called "199"…and a port group called "VMNetwork."…If I look at my other ESXi host,…I should see the identical configuration.…
I've got the same port groups configured on both hosts…and I've also got…a VMkernel port…that is marked for VMotion.…I have each one of these ESXi hosts.…That's critical because DRS is completely…dependent on VMotion.…That's all DRS is, is automatic VMotion…for the purposes of load balancing.…I've got my VMotion network all ready to go.…
I've got my VMkernel ports created.…I'm in good shape there.…Let's go back to the cluster itself…and edit the configuration of the cluster…
