Subject RE: vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA)

Hi,

Not 100% sure but if you run the VSA within the same cluster CS will kill it every time you
start it unless you deploy it from CS as a template.
So you will either need another host/cluster which runs this VSA for you or you import it
and deploy via CS onto a local storage then setup manually.

Regards

Yeah that too. :-) Sorry was looking at another installation when I was typing. :-)

Still would need to be setup with the ESX hosts before it is attached to the cloud since CS
doesn't natively manage the VMFS pool. That's what I was going after the most.

Thanks for getting me straight,
Matt
