App Volumes Storage Groups

Jump to solution

Did anybody already implemented App Volumes storage groups?

I set up a storage group with the following settings:

  • Automation: "Automatic Import Appstacks" and "Automatic Replicate Appstacks" enabled
  • Distribution Strategy: left default to "spread" as this only applies to writable volumes according to the documentation and I am not using writable volumes
  • Template Storage: I choose here the LUN where my appstacks are located
  • Storage Selection: Direct
  • Storage: I selected here the LUN I want my appstacks to be replicated to

but nothing seems to be happening.

Am I doing something wrong?

Sounds like you only selected 1 Storage location. You need to select more than 1 datastore for replication to occur. Typically you would select the datastore that you are creating the appstacks on (the same datastore you used for the template storage) plus 1 or more additional datastores in which to replicate. So using the Direct storage selection, you should have a minimum of 2 datastores checked.

Yes, that works. Thanks. I was probably misinterpreting the word "replication". Its actually more a "synchronisation"

The documentation is not really clear on that.
