The Host Readiness Check validates that a selected host or an entire cluster (all the hosts that a cluster contains) are set with the InfiniBox best practices for vSphere. 

The MPIO policy settings apply only to InfiniBox volumes. They do not affect volumes of other storage vendors.

Prepare a host or cluster

In order to prepare a host or cluster on the first time:

  1. On vSphere Client, select the desired ESXi host or cluster object. 
  2. Locate the INFINIDAT View. For instruction see: Locating the INFINIDAT View
  3. If the host / cluster is not already prepared, the Prepare Host/Cluster button will appear in the top bar of the INFINIDAT View.
  4. Click the Prepare Host/Cluster button.


  5. Cluster Readiness screen opens, Press the Check / Fix button to indicate whether the Cluster is ready.

Re-running the readiness check

To ensure that a host or cluster is ready:

  1. On vSphere Client, select the desired ESXi host or cluster object. 
  2. Access the INFINIDAT View. For instruction see: Locating the INFINIDAT View
  3. Click the More Options icon, located on the top bar and select the Check Host/Cluster Readiness option.

Note

Re-checking for host readiness is required In the following cases:

  • Whenever you connect the host to a new InfiniBox system, you need to verify that the host is ready to work with it.
  • When you convert a host between FC and iSCSI (or vice versa)
