VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols) datastores use standard SCSI commands to access data via a special SCSI device called the Protocol Endpoint (PE).
InfiniBox has a single PE, which is automatically created during the system installation.
Access to the Protocol Endpoint
In order to access the PE, vSphere hosts must be mapped to the PE.
InfiniBox provides this capability with an easy Enable vVols operation, which is available via the InfiniBox GUI and InfiniShell.
Enabling vVols using the InfiniBox GUI
Find the vSphere cluster or host that needs to use vVols, and from the menu select Enable vVols.
Enabling vVols will map the cluster to the vVol Protocol Endpoint on this InfiniBox system.
Enabling vVols using the InfiniShell
Execute the command
