Datrium DVX 101 – NetShelf Setup

For the NetShelf Setup, make sure you allocate a minimum of 3 IPs (floating, controller 1 & controller 2) for the data network or a total of 6 IPs if you plan to separate the management and data networks. The actual setup is very simple and takes only 2-3 minutes.

Upon successful connection via serial cable, you will be presented with the Datrium DVX Setup Wizard. The wizard will guide you through the following areas:

DVX settings – 15 seconds

Network configuration – 1:45 minutes

After the network settings have been set, the setup wizard will move on to

vCenter Server Registration – 21 seconds

The NetShelf is now set up and ready to be used in under 3 minutes.

In the next post, I will go over adding hosts to the Datrium DVX.
