Storage mapping to non SimpliVity Hosts

Hello Guys,

the mapping of a SimpliVity datastore to a non SimpliVity host in the same Cluster is pretty easy and supported. I would like to know if it is also supported to map the SimpliVity Datastore to non SimpliVity Hosts in a different Cluster, same vCenter or non SimpliVity Hosts ina different vCenter. Technically it is possible but is it also supported?

Cheers,

Nick

Hi @NZamp 

You are correct. It does and will work (via CLI), however it is not a supported configuration long term. It can be used in instances of emergency where a VM needs re-locating but should be avoided as it does not give us visibility as the plugin will face issues and will cause inconsistencies.

Thanks!

Hi dhooley,

thanks for your response that clarifies it a little.

Is the mapping of a SimpliVity Datastore to a non SinmpliVity node in a different cluster supported? This would work over the gui as the non SimpliVitys are shownin the selection menue.

 

Cheers,

Nick

Hello all,

i opened up a support case and they told me that mapping a SimpliVity datastore to a non SimpliVity host in a different cluster is supported.
