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 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.
