Deploying the InfiniBox systems
The SRA operates in an environment that has to be prepared in advance. The following steps need to be complete prior to the installation of INFINIDAT SRA:
- Deploy InfiniBox in both (source and destination) sites
- Note: use the same credentials (user and password) on both InfiniBox systems
- Deploy VMware vSphere, ESX and server(s) in both sites
- Deploy and configure SRM in both sites
- Deploy Host PowerTools in each site
Prepare the ESX hosts to work with InfiniBox
Use HostPowerTools for VMware to register all the ESX hosts for the InfiniBox system they are attached to.
Provision a volume in the primary site
Use HostPowerTools for VMware to provision a volume in the primary site; then, you can create virtual machines on this volume.
