Hi, we using a mixture of fusion ssd and 8x 300gb 15k sas disks, in view 5 you can select multiple hosts in a cluster and select their disks to store to replica/ linked clones on. however if you select multiple disk on mutliple hotes you cant select which set of disks on each host where the replica is going to reside.Basically the drop down list gis replica and linked clone location one one only all other gives drop down list of just replica. everything still works as view creates a replica on each host you selct you just don't seem to be able to specify which set of disks. What does view use to work out what set of disks ie fusion ssd or 15ksas disks to put the replica on? we dont use shared storage
I would assume it uses the same algorithm as the rebalance feature of View but I don't have the means to test it. I think you should open a ticket to get a 100% accurate answer from VMware. if you do please share the results back to the thread.
