DellEMC VxBlock – Cisco UCS Ethernet Adapter Policy

David Ring

The following details the creation of a VxBlock Cisco UCS ‘Ethernet Adapter Policy’ for a compute B-Series blade running VMware ESXi. This policy is leveraged by a service-profile which gets associated with their respective compute blades.

Note: This guidance is based on vSphere 6.0

The Vitual SAN host cannot be moved to the destination cluster: destination cluster vim.ClusterComputeResource:domain-### is Virtual SAN disabled


To resolve the problem we did the following:



  1. From Storage inventory view in vCenter, verify a VSAN datastore still exists.
  2. If it does, Putty into the ESXi host or access it via its ESXi Shell & execute the command:
    esxcli vsan cluster get
  3. If results appear, proceed to the solution …


  1. From previous command line (SSH or ESXi Shell) to the affected host, execute the following command:
    esxcli vsan cluster leave
  2. Now add the host to the existing Host Cluster…

Both Verification and Solution steps together look like this:
