Hi,

1. Task/Events View: When creating a VSAN cluster, the vSphere Web Client will display a task for the cluster creation. You can navigate to the "Task" or "Events" view to check the progress. Look for any ongoing tasks related to VSAN cluster creation, which might be labeled as "Create vSAN Cluster".

2. vSAN Health Check: The vSAN health check can also provide insights into the progress and status of the VSAN cluster creation. After enabling vSAN, a health check should be automatically triggered. You can go to "Cluster" > "Monitor" > "vSAN" > "Health" in the vSphere Web Client or vSphere Client to review the health check status and progress.

3. Cluster Summary: The "Summary" view of the cluster will typically display relevant information about the VSAN cluster, including its status. Check the "vSAN" section in the cluster summary to see if the VSAN services are enabled and the status of the cluster.

Hey @cemalettin ,

 

You can also use use the vSphere CLI to check the status of vSAN datastore creation. The following command will show you the status of all vSAN datastores in your cluster:

 

vsan.datastore.status

The output of this command will include a status code for each datastore. The status code for a vSAN datastore that is still being created is 1

 Once the vSAN datastore creation is complete, the status code will change to 0,You can also check the percentage of progress by looking at the progress field in the output of the vsan.datastore.status command
