I want to configure and create Datastore in my 5nine Manager Datacenter. How do I do that?
Datastore is an internal 5nine Manager Datacenter entity which is necessary to support access limitation to virtual machine (VM) resources.
Datastore can be added via Create Datastore wizard.
1. Define Datastore name and description.
5nine Manager Datacenter supports 3 types of storage:
- Local Filesystem - specific to a host. Typically used for simple scenarios where virtual disks are placed directly on local machine.
- Network Share - can be used by multiple hosts. This type of storage allows you to store virtual disks in a CIFS/SMB file server share.
- Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) Disk - allows all failover cluster nodes to share a singles volume.
Depending on the Datastore type selected, next steps will be as follows:
For local filesystem, select Hyper-V host where Datastore will be placed.
For network storage, define the list of hosts that can have access to this storage.
Cluster Shared Volume
For Cluster Shared Volume, select a cluster from the list.
Provide path to the Datastore in the UNC format.
After Datastore is created, you can navigate through the Datastore contents.
