Subject RE: Question about VMware Clusters in CS
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 05:34:56 GMT
Hi,

VMware Cluster is treated as externally managed cluster by CS.   CS looks for Vcenter Cluster
and Datacenter information while adding the cluster in CS.  CS does a discovery using this
information for all the hosts in VMCluster and all these will be represented as CS nodes under
VMware cluster.

Cluster name that we provide at CS should be same as Vcenter Cluster.

Thanks,
Sailaja.M

Cool...that's what it sounded like from the docs.

What I was trying to picture, though, is how that looks in CS.  By creating a new CS Cluster
for my VMware Cluster, will CS automatically create CS Hosts to represent the VMware nodes?

I'm familiar with how XenServer works in CS, where you create a CS Cluster and then have to
add the XenServer nodes as CS Hosts, but it sounds different for VMware.

Thanks!
