"but I was astonished to know that version HX 4.0 (1a) can segregate clusters even it's on the same FI"
because I have not seen this option in v4.0(1a). Where did you read this? I would LOVE to see your reference
So I suspect that the way you achieve what you want to do (have a VSI cluster and a VDI CLuster) is the same as all previous versions, which is (tailored for the design below from your post):
Step#1: Install the VDI Cluster (Standard install) but with a couple of variations:
Make sure you allocate at least 8 IP addresses for the CIMC (or KVM addresses in the installer)
when slecting the nodes to deploy, choose only nodes 1-3.
When you get to the Advanced Configuration options in the Cluster Configuration Screen, select the [x] Optimize for VDI Only Deployment [See note below]
When the cluster is operational and you have saved your configuration from the installer, and then choosen to Start Over,move on to...
Step #2: Install the VSI Cluster. Using the "I know what I'm doing" options of:
[x] Run Hypervisor Configuration [x] Deploy the HX Software [x] Create HX Cluster
and then continue with a normal install, this time:
selecting nodes 5-8 for the deployment,
use the same VLAN IDs, and the same vCenter Datacenter name, but...
..use a DIFFERENT vCenter Cluster Name (and a different HX Cluster Name - recommend making the HX CLuster name the same as the vCenter Cluster Name)
Note: I have not had a chance to actually test this, and I have a sneaking suspicion that you may not see the [x] Optimize for VDI Only Deployment option unless you choose the I know what I am doing path and just select all options.
I hope this helps
