Updating vSAN disk version in vSphere 8.0 U2

vSphere 8.0 U2 brings many improvements, fixes several problems and increases stability. After upgrading from vSphere 8.0 U1 to U2, there are some changes in vSAN as well. If vSAN cluster is running on the infrastructure, you need to rise disk version when you’re running the newest vSphere.


vSAN 8 – expanding existing capacity pool

The whole process is a quite obvious. If there are free disk slots in a ESXi hosts, get a new drives, install in the servers and reconfigure vSAN capacity pool from the vCenter.
