No local datastore

I've built a couple new servers to work on catching up with vSphere 6.7.  The issues I'm having is that after installing to a 64GB USB stick the system sees the storage but there is no local datastore for logs.  I do also have a NVMe and SSD in there I've configured for vSAN but would like to get my log errors clear up. 

Can anyone give suggestions on a way forward?

If you've installed ESXi on a USB stick (or any other removable flash media), it will not create a VMFS data store or store logs there. This is by design.

So if logs are also not supported on vSAN where is the suggested location for them?

Either a separate local device, or sent to a syslog server.
