After you create the VSA cluster, verify that the the correct number of VSA datastores appears in the vSphere Client.

1

In the vSphere Client, select View > Inventory > Datastores and Datastore Clusters.

The number of VSA datastores must match the number of ESXi hosts that you added to the VSA cluster.

2

Select each datastore and click the Summary tab.

3

Verify that all datastores have the same total, free, and used capacity in the Capacity panel.

4

Select each datastore and click the Hosts tab.

5

In the Datastore column verify that the status of each datastore is Mounted for each ESXi host in the datacenter.

The Mounted status shows that each ESXi host has access to and can read and write on the matching datastore.

You can start deploying virtual machines on the VSA datastores.
