VMWare licensing for multipathing
Posted on 2011-02-28
I just wanted confirmation that I am not misunderstanding this, but if I were to buy the VMWare vSphere Essentials Plus kit, since it says it does not include the vStorage APIs for Multipathing, then I will only have one path to my FC SAN from each host. Is this correct?
Assuming so, and there is only one physical connection to each host, is vCenter smart enough to switch ownership of the VMs to the other host using HA if the connection to the SAN is lost (via HBA failure for example)? I currently have 2 servers in a cluster.
