Updated: November 27, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

As of System Center 2012 R2, you can use Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to create storage pools from physical disks on Scale-Out File Servers.

To create a new storage pool from physical disks

  1. Open the Fabric workspace.

  2. In the Fabric pane, click Storage, and then click File Servers.

  3. In the File Servers, File Shares pane, select the file server on which you want to create the pool.

  4. On the Home tab, click Manage Pools.

  5. In the Manage Pools of File Server <file server> dialog box, click New.

  6. In the New Storage Pool Wizard, type a Name and select a Classification for the pool.

    The Disk list includes non-local physical disks that you can add to the pool. This includes Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) storage disks that are not in the pool yet. Select the disks that you want to include in the pool, and then click Create.

  7. In the Manage Pools of File Server <file server> dialog box, click OK to create the pool.
