how to map Datastore cluster to Host Clusters

When creating a New VM under Vmware Cluster, we may want that VM to reside in a specific cluster of Datastores.

I would like to know how to map or assign a cluster of Datastores to a cluster of ESX Hosts.

Thank you

Using the vSphere Client - Select Inventory > Datastores and Datastore Clusters.

Right Click Datacentre > New Datastore Cluster

Turn on Storage DRS if applicable

Select Host Cluster, and then Select Datastores

That is how you create a Datastore Cluster, and associated it with a Host Cluster.

No, the same as if a VM is vMotion from one host to another, there is no downtime.
