Hi. I think this is probably an relatively easy question:

Can DRS be set to not allow two specific VMs to run on same ESX host?

I would like to create an SQL 2005 two-node cluster on our ESX 3.5 cluster but obviously I would not want both VMs in the SQL cluster running on the same ESX host in the ESX cluster!

Thanks.

yes

Under DRS there is an option separate virtual machines" which is what you want to use.

Quick how to, the example is to keep VMs together but you can use the same method to separate them using the rules tab
