The Telco Cloud Platform 5G Edition design uses VMware vSAN as the shared storage for workloads. Enable vSAN on the management cluster and create a datastore.
For detailed configuration steps, see the VMware vSphere documentation.
- Enable vSAN for the cluster TCP_MGMT_CLUSTER.
- In the left Navigation pane, select the cluster.
- From the Actions drop-down menu, select Settings.
- Click General.
- Click Edit and select Turn on vSAN.
- To create the vSAN disk group, select all the magnetic disks and flash drives of hosts ESXi_MGMT_01 through ESXi_MGMT_04, and add them to the vSAN cluster.
- Name the vSAN datastore TCP_MGMT_VSAN_DS.
- Verify that the vSAN datastore TCP_MGMT_VSAN_DS is visible to the hosts ESXi_MGMT_01 through ESXi_MGMT_04.
- If the vCenter server appliance is deployed on an NFS Datastore, migrate the vCenter Server from the NFS datastore TCP_NFS_DS on ESXi_MGMT_01 to the vSAN datastore TCP_MGMT_VSAN_DS.
- In the Migrate wizard, under the migration type, select Change both compute resource and storage.
What to do next
VERIFICATION CHECKPOINT 2
After configuring vSAN, verify the following.
ESXi_MGMT_01 through ESXi_MGMT_04 are participated in configuring vSAN datastore creation and consumed hard disks from each ESXi host.
The vSAN datastore TCP_MGMT_VSAN_DS is visible to all four hosts in the cluster.
TCP_MGMT_VC resides on the vSAN datastore.
