hello you experts,
I have two ESX4 hosts and a HP MSA3212i storage and will use HA.
If I install vcenter server on a physical machine and this machine crashes totally, what effect does this have on my ESX-configuration. Does this mean that I wont be able to change my configuration on the esx cluster? or is it possible to install vcenter server on another physical machine and connect to the the esx hosts and get my configuration back somehow?
