You can set up multiple virtual flash resources using a batch configuration.

Set up multiple virtual flash resources at the same time or increase virtual flash resource capacity on hosts already configured with virtual flash resource.


Verify that hosts are configured with ESXi 5.5 or higher and have eligible SSDs so the hosts can appear in the Add Virtual Flash Capacity list.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the host.
  2. Right-click the host, select All vCenter Actions > Add Virtual Flash Capacity.
  3. Select one or more SSD.
    The selected SSDs are formatted so that the virtual flash resource can use them. All data on the disks is erased.
  4. Click OK.


Multiple virtual flash resources are created.
