    Enabling vSAN on vCenter 7 [newbie question]

    Lucas_Rey Novice

      Hello community,

      here there is a newbie, so be patient

       

      I'm trying to enable vSAN on vCenter 7 but I'm failing even reading tutorial or user manual, simply because I can't find any vSAN menu in configuration:

      I used the OVA VM image, to install a clean vCenter.

       

      Now, if I deploy vCenter from VCSA to ESXi node, I can install/configure vSAN and after that I have the related menu. I got QuickStart and vSAN menu and submenu.

      My question is, what I miss when I use ova image? Why I can't see the vSAN menu? I compared the configuration between them, and I can't find any differences. Is there any guide I can follow?

       

      Thank you
