If you are using the distributed virtual switch or already have a vSwitch configured, please skip this recipe and continue to the next recipe, Configuring VSAN networking on an existing switch.
Networking is the glue that holds the VSAN distributed storage nodes together. To permit redundancy, storage access, policy management, and so on, a robust and properly-configured network is key. From within vSphere, VSAN is enabled on a network interface as a service. If you are familiar with creating and enabling vMotion, management, and fault tolerance interfaces, you are already familiar with this process!
This recipe will cover the creation of a new VMkernel network interface in a new vSwitch with previously unused physical network adapters.
