Once you have deployed Unity VSA, as covered in the previous blog, you will need to create a storage pool if you want to serve out any storage. I have listed the steps below.
Under the Storage Pool Section go to Pools. Select the + to start the “Create Pool Wizard”
Name the Pool
Assign a Tier to each Virtual Disk attached to the VSA. You have Extreme, Performance and Capacity.
Select the Tiers you want in the Pool
Select the Virtual Disk you want to add that are in the tiers you selected
Specify if you want to create a VMware Capability Profile for the Pool. This is needed for VVOLS.
The results of the pool creation will be displayed
Summary of the Pool Created
I will cover creating a NAS Server in my next post and then go into NFS creation and replication.
