vmware vSAN - Linux Proxy?

Post by cpfleger »

Hello,

I did not find any information neither in the user guide nor in the Release Notes that would exclude Linux based proxies from being used (with virtual applicance/hot add mode) in conjunction with vmware vSAN.

So: can Linux based proxies then be used in such a scenario?
Anyone tried it yet? Positive or negative experiences?

Regards!

Hi, Claus. I can tell you that Linux proxies were practically designed for this scenario! I raised the priority of this feature request after meeting a customer who had vSAN full of Linux VMs (not a single Windows box to use as a proxy). Thanks!

I can confirm from my own experience that you can perfectly use Linux proxies in that role, it works!
