Chapter 3

Automating Storage and Networking

In this chapter, you will learn to:

  • Set Up the Storage
    • Setting Up Different Types of Storage
    • Configuring an iSCSI Target
    • Rescanning for New Storage
    • Adding Datastores
    • Setting a Multipath Policy
  • Set Up the Network
    • Standard and Distributed Switches
    • Adding VMkernel Port Groups
    • Making Your Switches and Port Groups Resilient
    • Copying Networking Configuration from Another Host
    • Moving Multiple VMs to a New Port Group

Storage and networking are two of the most critical components of a virtual environment. You need storage to be able to provision virtual machines (VMs) and you need networking to connect these VMs to one another and sometimes to the outside world. Whether you’re deploying a new cluster with new storage and networking, or maintaining and upgrading existing storage and networking, automation can come to your rescue to help you save time and maintain consistency of configuration.
