You can create a cluster, and then configure the cluster for vSAN.


  1. Right-click a data center and select New Cluster.
  2. Type a name for the cluster in the Name text box.
  3. Configure DRS, vSphere HA, and EVC for the cluster.
  4. Click OK.
    The cluster appears in the inventory.
  5. Add hosts to the vSAN cluster.
    vSAN clusters can include hosts with or without capacity devices. For best results, add hosts with capacity.

What to do next
