Last Modified: 2012-08-13
we have a Vmware with ESX 3.0 two clusters. On the second cluster (Houston) although it is configured for HA ( i have two esx servers on this cluster) and both esx servers have errors.
Also on the cluster level i have the message " insufficient resourlces to satisfy failover level on cluster Houston"
"ha gaent on <ip> in cluster houston has an error"
I have unchecked and re cheked the "configure for failover" radio buttin on the cluster , moved both exs servers to another cluster and then back to houston but no luck.
Any ideas ?
