I have two identical hosts in my cluster. Intermittantly either one of the hosts (it has happened to both) reports that it is not responding and the guest VMs reboot and utilize the remaining host in the cluster. When this happens none of the ip addresses associated with this host will respond to a ping. If i reboot the host it will reconnect.
i have a link sys GB switch connecting the storage device and the two hosts. I suspect it is something wrong with my switch but i would like to examine other possibilities before i spend money on another switch.
Any ideas would be helpful. FYI i am using FT on two VMs and the HA settings admission control is set to reserver 50% failover resources.
Many businesses neglect disaster recovery and treat it as an after-thought. I can tell you first hand that data will be lost, hard drives die, servers will be hacked, and careless (or malicious) employees can ruin your data.
