Manage vCenter Compute Resource Data Stores


Data stores can be attached and removed from vCenter compute resources. This association between a compute resource and a data store is called a data store join.

You can add data stores to a compute resource only if they are assigned to the zones of the same type. For more information, refer to Zone Types.


To add/remove data store joins:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > AdminSettings menu.
  2. Click the Compute resources icon.
  3. Click the vCenter compute resource's label that you want to manage data stores for.
  4. On the screen that appears, click Actions, point to Management Options, and then click Manage Data Stores.
  5. On the screen that follows, you'll see a list of all data stores currently associated with this vCenter compute resource.

To remove a data store join, click the Delete icon next to it. You'll be asked for confirmation before the store is removed.

To add a new data store join, select a data store from the drop-down menu, and then click Add Data Store.
