VMware: Deploying grid nodes

You must deploy a virtual machine in VMware vSphere for each VMware node you want to add in the expansion.

Procedure

  1. Deploy the new grid node as a virtual machine and connect it to one or more StorageGRID networks.
    When you deploy the node, you can optionally remap node ports or increase CPU or memory settings.
