VMware HA when enabled by default, will require your other server to have the same resource CPU and Memory available for a FAILOVER.

Usually memory is the bottleneck.

So if you have enough space memory available on your others hosts you will not have an issue.

What are you resources, how much memory is in use on host1?

how much is free on host2?

Also remember Admission Control is only a safeguard to prevent poor performance, on host2, when a HA action occurs, on host1 failure.

So if host1 is fully loaded, and it's a 64GB host, you will need host2+64GB

Each hypervisor have 12x2.6 GHz and the usage is about 1100 MHz used in each one.

CPU will not be the issue, Memory will be the issue!

So do you have enough memory for Host 2?

You'll have no issues, currently, you have plenty of spare resources.

You will be able to demonstrate this, by putting a host into maintenance mode.
