I’m looking for a way to expand storage a 6-node VMware cluster (ESX 6.7 U3), adding one or more Storage-only node could be an option. But, as I know, Storage-only nodes come with AHV, so I’d like to understand how I could add those nodes to the existing cluster.
Trying to picture the idea, I'm assuming that SO nodes would work as new storage pool and cannot be expanded the existing one, am I right? I'm looking for documentation that give me some direction about the idea I have in mind.
Any idea about this?

Please see the instructions on the Prism Guide.
You need to image the node as Storage only using a foundation VM and then expand the cluster normally from the prism.
