  • Same disks were used for capacity and cache tier (use faster disks for the cache tier!)
  • VSAN is almost full, so all of the disks are almost full (use maximum 70% of capacity!)
  • only one vmk port was configured for all type of traffic (use different VMKs for vMotion/VSAN/etc VMK ports)
  • Different disk FW versions from HCL (use only supported, latest FW versions which are in the VSAN HCL!)
  • Mixed size capacity disks. (use only the same size disks in the capacity tier!)
