  • 1.  Adding capacity disks

    Posted May 16, 2024 04:12 AM

    Hello Friend,

    I would appreciate to know the addition of capacity disk on vsan.

    we have 10 node all flash vsan cluster (version 7.OU3p) , each host has 2 disk group each with one flash disk and two capacity disk.

    Recently we added six capacity disk to each host(3 per disk group). 

    My concern here is, do we need to claim disk per host basis or we can claim disk in all host. which is best.

    Autonomic rebalance is enable with 30% threshold 

    Thanks for the response.

    Not sure I understand the question. If you added the disks as you need the capacity, why not just claim them? You added them for a reason right? Just go to each host and claim the disks for vSAN.

    the question is do we need to wait for rebalancing to happen on the host we claimed the disk or move forward with other host to claim disk

    Just add them all in one go, no problem.
