Why vsphere cluster hosts have yellow triangles?

I've created a vsphere cluster with two vsphere 5 hosts in vmware workstation 7 similar to this demo.  http://vimeo.com/7560591

Everything was fine until I created the cluster, enabled HA, DRS, etc.  Now I have these yellow triangles on the hosts, but no alarms.  Also the Summary General information is all zeros.

See attached pic.

Anyone have suggestions?

If you click on the datacenter level on the tree to the left, then the alarms or hosts tab, see if it indicates what the issue is there?

hanccocka's probably correct that it is the datastore as it has less than 15% free space on the local datastore.  move the VM's or ISO's uploaded to that datastore to another datastore and see if that clears the alarm indicator.

also check the hardware status tab for each host

If you remove them from the Cluster do they disappear?

Do you have shared storage?

Maybe the alarms are there because HA/DRS resources are not satisfied?

Untick HA and DRS in the Cluster and then Tick HA, see if Alarms are still present, and Tick DRS, still if still present?

Thanks!!  I am just realizing that I did not add the hosts to the new cluster.  So I just dragged and dropped each host into the cluster and managed to get them added.  However, I still have these warnings, but do not know how to get the details of the warnings.  Right clicking the hosts does not show anything and neither does the Alarms tab.  See updated attached pic...still looking. host warnings

Yes, I have shared storage using Openfiler as a VM.  I think you are right that it probably has something to do with HA, but I can not get the details of the warnings to know for sure...

This is my first time configuring a cluser and iSCSI shared storage (respectively).
I've attached screenshots of my configuration for one host (both hosts configured the same) in case you have additional suggestions.  

I am trying to configure vsphere and then vmware view with separate storage components.

THANKS!

datastore Warning Alert.

That's probably the error.
