In this post we will continue covering the storage objective from the blueprint. In the previous post we setup our vSAN storage and now we will disucss the following: VSAN: Collect vSAN Observer output Explain vSAN failure domains functionality Enable/Disable Virtual SAN Fault Domains Configure Storage Policies VVOL: Explain VVOL architectural components Determine the role of storage providers in VVOLs Create/Modify VMware Virtual Volumes (VVOLs)   Virtual SAN Observer: The VMware vSAN Observer is a Web-based tool that runs on RVC(Ruby vSphere Console) and is used for in-depth performance analysis and monitoring of the vSAN cluster. To Collect vSAN Observer output please refer to this KB: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2064240 Explain VSAN failure domains functionality and Enable/Disable Virtual SAN Fault Domains: vSAN supports fault domains to protect hosts from rack or chassis failure when the vSAN cluster…

In this post we will continue covering the storage objective from the blueprint. Again I will NOT follow the order of blueprint objective but i will cover all of them. The following are the blueprint objective: Explain VSAN and VVOL architectural components Determine the role of storage providers in VSAN Determine the role of storage providers in VVOLs Explain VSAN failure domains functionality Configure/Manage VMware Virtual SAN Create/Modify VMware Virtual Volumes (VVOLs) Configure Storage Policies Enable/Disable Virtual SAN Fault Domains Create Virtual Volumes given the workload and availability requirements Collect VSAN Observer output Create storage policies appropriate for given workloads and availability requirements Configure VVOLs Protocol Endpoints The following objective I will not be able to demonstrate since i am using VMware Workstation and not real HW but i will try to…
