We recommend you read and familiarize yourself with the content contained within the above links in order to fully understand the context of this video.
In Brownfield deployments VMware vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA) is used to create VSA clusters on ESXi hosts that have virtual machines running on local datastores. In order to successfully deploy and configure a VSA cluster in a brownfield environment with zero or minimal down-time, certain configurations (as shown in this video) must be applied before starting the deployment.
Our video is a little bit long (over 9 minutes), but nothing that a good cup of coffee can’t fix!
