I have VSA v5.1. I have a two node cluster.. I needed to power down all cluster members/appliances and/or hosts. I migrated all VM's to one host. I then powered all VM's down. I then placed that particular VSA appliance in maintenance mode and then shut it down via guest shutdown on the appliance and then shut down it's host after putting the host in maintenance mode. I had some confusion on how to get the second one to go in maintenance for there was no option to put it in maintenance. I then tried to put the host in maintenance but it wouldn't since the VSA appliance was powered on still. Then.. I read the article http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-50/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsa.doc_10%2FGUID-EC53CC18-6DA9-423B-B486-CCE5802D98F1.html
. I then shut down the guest OS of the VSA appliance via connecting directly to it's host. I then placed the last host in maintenance mode. I then shut the host off. After performing maintenance I powered on all hosts. VSA-1 appliance came on just fine, however, VSA-0 is showing to be offline even though we exited maintenance mode successfully. Do we just use the replace option for VSA-0?
