    Fake vSAN with Remote Storage? (Lab Purposes Only)

    barnette08 Hot Shot

      So I've seen plenty of stuff out there where we can trick ESXi into thinking a spinning local drive is SSD.  However, what I'm looking for is to see if anyone has been able to trick ESXi into thinking it's iSCSI, FC, or NFS devices are locally attached, in order to run vSAN in a test lab.  I've seen the articles on nesting and have done that as well, but I need to try and do this with a physical server if I can.


      I didn't see any options in the claim rule add commands and when using the GUI to 'Mark as Local' I just get a failure - cannot change the host configuration.  Any ideas would be helpful!
