Both clustered SAN volumes attached to one ESXi 5.5 host, why?
Posted on 2013-11-26
This is a 2-node ESXi 5.5 hosts, to shared 2 volumes from an SAN iSCSI storage. However, upon the power up, I found that both these SAN volumes attached to only 1 ESXi 5.5 host.
A cluster was created to cover the above 2 hosts. On a esxi cluster, I saw an error message - Insufficient vSphere HA Failover resources, any thing wrong/missing with the ha setup?
Please see my clustering setup:
- there are 2 vSwitches - vswitch0, for VM network and management (nic0, nic1 & nic2)
- vSwitch1, contains iSCSI 1 (nic3, nic 4(unused)) and iSCSI 2 (nic4, nic3 unused), storage
heartbeat (both nic3 and 4), and vMotion (vMotion and mgmt)
- ESXi Clustering:
Cluster Features: CTS Cluster
¿ Turn on vSphere HA (true)
¿ Turn on vSphere DRS (false)
vSphere HA: Enable Host Monitoring (true)
¿ Enable: Disallow VM power on operations that violate
¿ Host failure the cluster tolerates: 1
VM Monitoring: Disabled
Datastore Heartbeating: ¿ Select any of the cluster datastores
VMware EVC: Disabled
Swapfile Location: ¿ Store the swapfile in the same directory of the virtual
How to change so as one clustered volume is attach to one esxi 2 from esxi 1?
