For campus cluster storage, Veritas recommends using Storage Foundation for Windows (SFW) site-aware allocation. To enable site-aware allocation, you assign a site name to disks after they are added to a disk group. In the VEA assigning a site name is referred to as adding disks to a site.
For example, Disk1 and Disk2 are physically located on Site A and Disk3 and Disk4 are physically located on Site B. Therefore, you add Disk1 and Disk2 to site_a and add Disk3 and Disk4 to site_b.
To add disks to a site
Disks must be part of a dynamic disk group in order to add them to a site.
Choose Select a new site and specify a new site name.
The site name can include any alphanumeric value and valid characters like the period (.), dash (-), and underscore ( _ ). It cannot exceed 31 characters. Site names are case insensitive; all names are converted to lowercase.
Choose Available Sites and select a site from the list.
