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

1

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

2

Create and configure vSAN cluster on node 1.

3

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.

4

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.

5

To establish failover protection, create a vSphere Cluster.
