  • 1.  vSAN Extend with hosts additional

    Posted Jun 13, 2024 08:19 AM

    Friends, I'm having a problem and would like your help. Next, I set up a laboratory with a vSAN cluster with 3 nodes, everything works normally, however, I need to study the policies and decided to add 2 more hosts to the cluster, I run the process through Quickstart takes time and at the end it shows the available vSAN space only for the last 2 nodes inserted, instead of extending the existing space. Where am I going wrong??

    Hi Dreher,

    Sound like you might have a cluster partition e.g. the 3 original nodes and the 2 new ones cannot communicate with each other - check Skyline Health as step 1. here.

    Hello friend,
    But my question still persists, all hosts are on the same network, wouldn't it just be a case of adding the 2 hosts to expand the vSAN volume?

    No Sure what happened during QuickStart. Please share the screenshots.
    However adding hosts to cluster and expand the DiskGroup is straight forward process

    Configure vSAN vmkernel Port as other three Nodes
    Introduce new hosts in vSAN cluster
    Configure Disk Management  (Claim unused disks) of both the Nodes (Cache/Capacity Disks)

    I would suggest to evacuate hosts from cluster (full data migration) and re-add.

    Don't hesitate to Recommend, if you find it helpful.
