vSAN is enabled on the Cluster, which can be managed by vCenter Server.

It's also recommended to use 4 hosts per vSAN Cluster, and VMware HA enabled.

You will also require the correct number of licenses for CPU in the Hosts.

Thank you Andrew

i just configured test . i found it is not possible to build 2 different VSAN cluster using the same VDS

otherwise you will get

VMware Virtual SAN configuration fails with the error: Found another host participating in the VSAN service which is not a member of this host's vCenter cluster (2062704)

this because of VSAN traffic use the same VLAN ID

so i created another VDS and i used different VLAN ID for the second VSAN traffic and it worked

thank you

All hosts and objects must be part of the same cluster!

so if you are using the same VDS for both Clusters, that's not allowed, as you have found!

everything has got to be unique for the Cluster, and VSAN.
