    How do I create and make shared storage available to my ESXi hosts?

    vmman34 Enthusiast



      I come from a Hyper V background and I am trying to learn VMware.


      I have created a virtual lab, with one cluster and two virtual ESXi hosts.


      I want to create a Cluster Shared Volume, or Cluster Shared Datastore in VM terms by aggregating two or more disks and presenting it to the Cluster as one LUN.

      Then I want to format it a VMFS.


      What is the best way to do this?


      Can I create a local LUN on each ESXi host and aggregate them some way?


      Will I have to create another VM with a set of pooled disks, and run some kind of vSAN software?
