3. Creating the Storage Cluster

To create the storage cluster, do the following:

  1. Open the INFRASTRUCTURE > Nodes screen and click a node in the UNASSIGNED list.

  2. On the node overview screen, click Create cluster.

  3. In the Cluster field, type a name for the cluster. The name may only contain Latin letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), underscores (“_”) and dashes (“-“).

  6. Repeat the previous step for the remaining unassigned nodes.

You can monitor cluster creation progress in the HEALTHY list of the INFRASTRUCTURE > Nodes screen. The creation might take some time depending on the number of disks to be configured. Once the automatic configuration is complete, the cluster is created.
