3. Creating the Storage Cluster¶
Before you create the storage cluster, enable management node high availability as described in the Administrator’s Guide.
To create the storage cluster, do the following:
Open the INFRASTRUCTURE > Nodes screen and click a node in the UNASSIGNED list.
On the node overview screen, click Create cluster.
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 (“-“).
Click New cluster.
Click the next node in the UNASSIGNED list and click Join cluster.
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.
