Hi Experts,

I have 3 hosts in my vSphere HA cluster.
Just one host has a warning, see the pic.

Config Issues Logs
How clear this or get rid of it ?
Because this host has no local storage.

It's recommended to set a datastore for logging

In vSphere Client, select the host in the inventory panel.
Click the Configuration tab, then click Advanced Settings under Software.
Ensure that Syslog.global.logDir points to a persistent location.
The directory should be specified as [datastorename] path_to_file where the path is relative to the datastore. For example, [datastore1] /systemlogs.

If the Syslog.global.logDir field is empty or explicitly points to a scratch partition, make sure that the field ScratchConfig.CurrentScratchLocation shows a location on persistent storage.
