Preparing PowerOne for manual deployment of VCF This chapter explains the procedures to run on Dell EMC PowerOne before you manually deploy VCF. Ensure that all networking services such as AD, DCHP, DNS, and NTP are available to VCF in the external environment as they are not provided by the PowerOne Controller. Child TopicsReserve compute servers for manual VCF deployment Before starting manual deployment of VCF, you must reserve the compute servers so that they are not used for PowerOne workload Cluster Resource Groups (CRGs). VCF requires a minimum of four vSAN capable servers for the management domain. Reserve Fibre Channel ports for manually deploying the VCF Virtual Infrastructure workload domain deployment To manually deploy a VCF Virtual Infrastructure (VI) workload domain, reserve port groups in PowerOne Navigator so that they are not allocated for other CRGs.
