After you add physical storage to your ESXi hosts, you can grow a VSA cluster to include additional space.

Perform this operation during a maintenance window while no VSA datastore I/O is occurring.

Back up any valuable data that is located on a VSA cluster.

1

Access the VSA Manager tab.

In the vSphere Client, select the datacenter that accommodates the VSA cluster, and click VSA Manager

In the vSphere Web Client, select the datacenter that accommodates the VSA cluster, and click Manage > VSA Manager.

2

Click the Increase Storage link in the VSA Cluster Properties panel.

3

To increase the overall VSA cluster storage capacity, specify the amount of storage you want to use and click Next.

The maximum value is based on the space currently available on the hosts. This value does not include space that VSA reserves for future upgrades and other needs.

4

Review the changes and click Increase.

5

Confirm that you want to increase storage capacity and click OK.
