Lab update #3

January 26, 2020 – 10:24 am

So the lab is all assembled, and work has begun. Here’s a quick picture of the hardware…  Still have to cleanup the power cables.

I am running vSphere ESXi 6.7 on 3 hosts. I setup a 2 node vSAN cluster, and I use the 3rd host as a Management node (the horizontal server under the other 2).

All these hosts also have an iSCSI link to a QNAP NAS for extra storage needs, and are connected via a Ubiquiti 10GB switch just for the storage traffic.

I use a VMUG Advantage licence to get all this running and to experiment with the various VMware products. 

If you’re interested, check out the VMUG Advantage subscription and participate in your local VMUG events (We sometimes have a draw for subscriptions during the events).
