To configure vSAN on Edge Cluster, follow these steps.

For detailed configuration steps, see Administering VMware vSAN.


  1. Enable vSAN for the cluster TCP_EDGE_CLUSTER.
  2. To create the vSAN disk group, select all the magnetic disks and flash drives of each ESXi host, and add them to the vSAN cluster.
  3. Name the vSAN datastore TCP_EDGE_VSAN_DS.
  4. Verify that the hosts can see TCP_EDGE_VSAN_DS.

What to do next

After configuring vSAN, do the following tasks:

  1. Verify that ESXi_EDGE_01 through ESXi_EDGE_03 are participated in configuring vSAN datastore creation and consumed hard disks from each ESXi host.

  2. Verify that the vSAN datastore TCP_EDGE_VSAN_DS is visible to all three hosts in the cluster.

  3. Create a test VM on the vSAN datastore.

  4. Run the vSAN Skyline health check to verify that vSAN is configured properly.


    If you find any errors during the verification, ensure that the errors are fixed before you proceed with the next steps.

  5. Delete the test VM on the vSAN datastore.
