The Host Selection page displays hosts that are suitable for the management domain (healthy hosts that the system can access via SSH).

The primary host (host that contains the management VMs) is selected by default. The page displays hosts that have the same disk type as the primary host (all Flash or hybrid). Though you can add unbalanced hosts (with varying CPU, memory, and storage) to the management domain, it is recommended that you add hosts that have similar processor, memory, storage, and disk types for optimum performance.


When selecting a host, verify it is healthy by running the SoS health check command. See Supportability and Serviceability (SoS) Tool.


  1. Select 3 hosts for the management domain.

    The UI displays a notification if you select unbalanced hosts that can potentially affect performance.

  2. Click CONTINUE.
