esxi VM moved to different clustered host in power off condition, why?
Posted on 2013-11-28
This is the same 2-node esxi 5.5 hosts setup for HA in my previous posted questions. 2 Volumes were made available from iscsi san storage. both esxi hosts can simultaneously access to both volumes. In volume 1, 2 VMs are stored, which 3 VMs are stored in volume 2.
Using vCenter, a cluster is formed to take care of the above 2 hosts and 5 VMs. I also configured the 2 VMs that stored in volume 1, hosted by esxi host 1; whereas, other 3 VMs hosted by esxi host 2.
Now, in order to test the cluster, I shut down the esxi host 1, I can see that 2 VMs from volume 1, are not hosted by esxi host 2, but, both VMs are in the power off state. Can I set in such the way that these VMs, while migrating, is in the power on state?
thanks in advance.
