We recently purchased a MD3400 DAS along with VMware licensing /VCenter. We currently have 2 Dell R720 servers in production.
We purchased the DAS for document imaging and so we can implement VMotion and HA. We have installed the HBA cards in the servers and carved out a LUN on the DAS which both servers can see under storage adapter and path.
The 2 Esxi hosts have local datastores that have 2 VM's on each. What are the steps needed in order to use the DAS for VMotion, so we can patch each Esxi host without downtime? Do we need to move all hosts to the new DAS datastore permanently and not use the local datastores?
