HA clusters/how do they know when to kick in
Posted on 2013-11-25
can I ask for vmware HA, how do other hosts joined to a cluster know when one of the other hosts has died? And what formula comes into play to determine which of the other hosts takes over the guest machines, if say you have 5 hosts joined to a cluster, how do you know which of the other 4 would kick in were 1 host to die/fail. Is there anything you need to "do" or "configure" on the other hosts to ensure they are aware when a host fails/would be made aware if another host fais?
