    vSAN Cluster and MacOS Host

    BoothsSysadmin Lurker

      We have a 4-node vSAN cluster. I have created a Windows VM for our design team. Unfortunately given the age of the iMacs (10.1) and the version of Windows (2016) there appears to be some SMB compatibility issues. I am putting together a range of options and wondered if we could introduce some supported Apple hardware into the cluster, spin-up a macOS VM that uses the vSAN storage?

       

      Is this possible? Valid?

       

      Assuming the Apple hardware is supported, is it wise/possible to have a node in the cluster that isn't contributing to the vSAN storage like the other 4?

       

      Any advice much appreciated.

       

      Thanks
