Initial High Level Configuration

To setup the FX2 I have installed ESXi 6.0 U2 to each of the four FC430 nodes and deployed the vCenter virtual appliance (VSCA). All four ESXi hosts have been added to a new cluster which I’ve called VSAN. I’ve also configured the network prerequisites for VSAN traffic. I’ve uplinked each IOA to my 10Gb switch using a LAG (by default the IOA’s are configured to LAG) and made sure the internal ports come online.

Don’t forget as this is an FX2 chassis it is possible to streamline large deployments using server templates either via the CMC or using Dell OpenManage Essentials if licensed correctly.  My previous blog series covers the FX2 in more detail.
