VMware Cloud Foundation – Expand Workload Domain

In this video, we’ve completed the imaging and initial bring up process for the VMware Cloud Foundation instance. It includes two qualified top-of-rack switches, a management switch and 12 vSAN Ready Nodes. A four-node Management Domain is in place along with a four-node VI Workload Domain. Now, we’ll add capacity to the workload domain from available vSAN Ready Nodes in the VMware Cloud Foundation instance. There is a ton of automated goodness happening under the hood during the workload domain creation phase. Watch closely and you’ll catch the tasks being orchestrated across the integrated platform.

In this video, we demonstrate imaging the primary rack in a VMware Cloud Foundation instance. We’ve deployed and configured the imaging appliance with the software bundle on a laptop that’s plugged into the management switch. From here we’ll kick off the imaging process that will deploy and perform the “first-boot” configuration of the two top-of-rack switches, the management switch, and the 12 qualified vSAN Ready Nodes in the system.
