Where do the AOS sit? Is it inside the CVM or on the SATA DOM?
Is AHV created when the AOS is installed or vice versa
Best answer by RichardsonPorto
As already explained on previous comment, the AOS running inside the CVM. The CVM is created on the hypervisor during the Foundation process. The CVM configuration files (like .xml for AHV and .vmx for ESX) resides on SATA DOM, but all CVM data are stored on SSD and HDD.
The AHV is installed on SATA DOM and the node SSDs/HDDs are presented directly to the CVM.
