Did you install a vSAN demo license?

Note that you also need a disk controller that is on the vSAN HCL: http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=vsan

Your lab also need multicast capable switches that you may have to configure in order to get vSAN working.

this is how I did it in my EE Article


(okay this is for 5.5!)

What if you set it to Manual, and then Click OK. (e.g. ignore the license message!)
Ah, you're trying to run a nested ESXi env. :)

Well, first you need to make sure each of your ESXi VMs have 6 Gb of memory, you also need vSAN 6.1 as 6.0 requires 3 ESXi VMs.

Here's a pretty good article describing how to do it on 6.0. 6.1 shouldn't be too different. :)
