Easily Create a VSI Application on NFS


To create a VSI application for use over NAS without compromising application or overall system performance, follow these steps in OnCommand System Manager:


  1. Select the SVM.
  2. Click the Applications tab in the menu bar.
  3. Click Add Application.
  4. In the “Add Virtual Server Datastores” page, specify the following properties of the application:
  • The name of the datastore. 
  • The number of datastores, their storage service levels and sizes.
  • The type of the hypervisor that will host the VMs that access the datastores.
  • Select NAS as the protocol used to access the application.
  • Specify the Hyper-V Service account (for hypervisor=Hyper-V) or the host IP address (hypervisor=VMware or Xen).




5. Use System Manager to view the details of the VSI application.
