In VMware Cloud Foundation, to extend the storage space of the vSAN datastore, create vSAN disk groups on each ESXi host in Availability Zone 2.


  1. In a Web browser, log in to vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.
    Setting Value
    URL https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/ui
    User name administrator@vsphere.local
    Password vsphere_admin_password
  2. In the Hosts and clusters inventory, expand the sfo01w01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local tree and expand the sfo01-w01dc data center.
  3. Select the sfo01-w01-shared01 cluster and click the Configure tab.
  4. In the vSAN section, click Disk management.
  5. Select sfo02w01esx01.sfo01.rainpole.local and click the Create a new disk group button.
  6. In the Create disk group dialog box, select a flash disk for the cache tier, two hard disk drives for the capacity Type, and click OK.
  7. Repeat this procedure for the remaining ESXi hosts in Availability Zone 2.
