VCSA 6 install
Posted on 2016-09-26
We are building a data centre . We have 2 physical servers with win 2012r2 installed which will be used for backup. We have 7 esxi hosts with esxi6 u2 installed. My goal is to build vcsa 6 . our DC is in other data centre and authentication is done over VPN.
In order to install vcsa 6 on one of the host, I am using win2012r2 as an platform . I am using local storage of the exsi host to deploy vcenter appliance. The vcenter appliance has 2 ip address with 1 tagged vlan and other untagged.
So I have been able to deploy vcenter appliance. I created distributed switch and was able to add all the hosts to distributed switch, except for host that has the vcenter appliance. As soon as I add host to the distributed switch, I loose all the connectivity and vcenter goes down and I gained the connectivity after the network reset.
this is a fresh built. and the local storage of esxi host of the cluster is providing the storage for vcenter vm as well. how can I migrate all the hosts without vcenter. what is the solution?
we are planning to have vsan environment and we don't have a shared storage at the premises.
I have tried this couple times and both times results were the same. Just wondering the root cause, and looking for a strategy?
