    Workload domain across racks

    thomps01 Hot Shot

      Is it allowed to create a single workload domain in VCF which spreads across more than one physical rack?


      assuming I’ve got the inter-rack switches in place, are there any reasons why I couldnt spread a cluster of hosts out?


      i ask because I understand 32 nodes is a limit in a single rack but power constraints mean this isn’t really possible in my DC.

          Yes, you can use the server selection page when creating a workload domain to select the compatible hosts with the system either within a rack or across racks. The steps to perform this operation for each workload domain type are provided in the “Working with the Management Domain and Workload Domain” section of the documentation.
