    Possible to host a Windows Share on a vSAN Cluster

    mcbrowneps Lurker

      We recently purchased a VxRail cluster running VMWare/vSAN. For all of our Windows clients we redirect all documents and desktop folders to a share that is hosted on a 2 node Windows Failover Cluster. I wanted to know if there was anyway to host the actual share directly on the VxRail/vSAN cluster. Since the VxRail/vSAN is already configured with multiple levels of failover I just don't see the need to set up a Windows Failover Cluster. I will still need to set ntfs permissions on user folders within the share. Is it at all possible to set up a share directly on the vSAN cluster that can have ntfs permissions applied to it?
