I'm creating a Virtual SAN cluster in VMware server. So I need a SSD and HDD for each host. I don't know how to create a SSD with 10GB space. Can anyone please help me?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello, it doesn’t appear you can partition a SSD in VMware Virtual SAN.
In a blog post from Duncan Epping, he writes
“Can I partition my SSD or disks so that I can use them for other (install ESXi / vFlash) purposes?

No you cannot partition your SSD or HDD(s). Virtual SAN will only, and always, claim entire disks. With VSAN it probably makes most sense to install ESXi on an internal USB/SD card, this to maximize the capacity for VSAN.”
Hope this is helpful.
