The Server Selection page displays available hosts along with hosts details. Hosts that are powered off, cannot be accessed via SSH, or have not been properly commissioned are not displayed.

  • For a VI workload domain, you can only select hosts that have the same storage type. When you select the first host, hosts that have a storage type different from the selected host are grayed out.

  • When selecting hosts, select only healthy hosts. To check a host's health, log into it and run use the SoS health check command:

    ./sos --health-check

    For more information, see Supportability and Serviceability (SoS) Tool.

  • For optimum performance, you should select hosts that are identical in terms of memory, CPU types, storage, and disks. If you select unbalanced hosts, the UI displays a warning message, but you can proceed with the workload domain creation.

Procedure

  1. Select hosts for building the VI workload domain.
