If the host running vCenter fails, will VMWare HA still work?
Posted on 2014-04-16
I have two hosts running ESXi 5.5, licensed for High Availability and vMotion.
I've tested vMotion back and forth between both hosts and all test ok.
I've also tested rebooting one of the hosts and the VMs on that host failed over to the other host, all test ok.
But what will happen when I reboot the host containing the vCenter Virtual Machine itself? Will the failover of that VM and the other VM's on that host still work, if there is suddenly no vCenter running?
