We have 3 ESXi Hosts with local storage and all of our Virtual Machine information is located on the ESXi Host local Disk Drives (Raid-10). We just purchased a new SAN and the vendor/re-seller is scheduled to install the new SAN and connect it to our existing VmWare Envirnment and IT infrastructure.
Keep in mind that we have an existing Virtual:
- VCenter Server Appliance (VCSA)
The VCSA is located on 1 of the ESXi host's local DataStores. My questions are:
1. Once the SAN is setup, how can I get the VMware cluster to recognize the new shared storage DataStores?
2. Will Storage vMotion be available automatically when the SAN is connected to the VMware cluster?
3. How may I migrate the VCSA from the local storage to the shared storage?
