Adding a hard drive to the virtual machine

Before adding a cache device in NAS Bridge, you must have an available virtual machine hard drive. If you already have an available hard drive defined to the virtual machine, you do not need to add a new one. Otherwise, you must add a hard drive to the NAS Bridge virtual machine.

Before you begin

You must be familiar with VMware vSphere and ESXi, and have experience managing virtual machines in this environment.


  1. Sign in to the VMware vSphere Web Client.
  2. Locate the NAS Bridge virtual machine.
  3. Edit the virtual machine settings and add a new hard drive.
  4. Select the location for the hard drive and click OK.
