Switching the Active Storage to the New Data storage

Aug 09, 2017

In SD-WAN Center, you can switch the active storage to the data store you created on your virtual server. This allows you to store more statistics data obtained by polling all the SD-WAN appliances in the WAN.  For information on creating a datastore on ESXi server, see  Adding and Configuring the Datastore on ESXi Server. For information on creating a datastore on XenServer, see Adding and Configuring the Data Storage on XenServer.
