Proper procedure to enter maintenance mode in a cluster
Posted on 2014-03-05
I have a quick and easy 500 question-
I have a 5.5 Cluster with 2 hosts configured with HA and DRS with the VM's on a SAN (DRS is in Partial Automated until I get a warm and fuzzy with DRS).
I want to enter one of the Hosts into maintenace mode. Do I need to perform the same procedures as if it was not a cluster?
Meaning, Do I need to vmotion off the VM's onto the other server (I presume I need to disable temp DRS) , then enter maintenace mode, or will VMWare do this automatically if I try entering Maintenance mode?
Thats all- Thanks
