Configuring vSAN to function with Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure is a multi-step process. These steps must be performed in sequence.


Ensure that all disks in the system intended for vSAN use are tagged as local.


Create and configure vSAN cluster on node 1.


You install and configure the vCenter Server Appliance on the prepared ESXi host to create a virtual datacenter and vSphere cluster into which you can deploy the on-premises components. The vCenter Server Appliance installation is configured to use an embedded Platform Services Controller.


In the vCenter Server environment, you must create a virtual data center and create a distributed virtual switch and distributed port groups for that data center.


To establish failover protection, create a vSphere Cluster.
