    vCloud director on single host

    Rob80 Novice

      Hi,

       

      I wonder if vcd10 deployment and running is possible on single esxi host, as it seems must have DRS enabled, which potentially requires more than one host. Also will VSAN is necessary for vcloud or local storage can be used?

          Hi,

           

          Local storage can be used, and you can create a cluster with a single host with DRS enabled.

            Hi,

             

            You can install any version of vCD to a vSphere cluster but also to a single host. It does not matter if DRS is enabled. For the appliance version it imports as a OVA. For the binary version, you can install it on compatible RHEL and CentOS VM.

             

            The resource cluster (where the actual customers VM's run) must indeed have DRS enabled. Since vCD depends on Resource Pools. After you have installed vCD you can only add a vCenter server that has NSX enabled. This vCenter server manages the resource cluster.
