as shown in figure below:
the stage of deploying the DEPLOYVM0 took over 2 hours.(maybe to 3 hours)
is it normal?
i was performing 5-tile test on a 4-node SUT vSAN cluster and this occurred;
the vmmark3-template was placed in an external disk LUN and the targetLUN(for deploy VM) was set to the vsanDatastore(which is in the SUT).
but basically the deploy time was short when i did some 4-tiles tests, which took less than 1 hour.
No, a deploy operation should never take that long to complete. I would guess there is a bottleneck (or a hardware issue?) within the vSAN environment.
