vSphere 5.1 Cluster
Posted on 2014-11-12
just inherited a small vSphere cluster of 3 hosts and the vSphere server running 5.1.
I have 2 problems the first being that I cannot log onto the vSphere server because the credentials are unknown - I'm not logging this call for that as I suppose that is something that we here need to deal with and try to acquire the credential but my question is this.
I can log on to all 3 ESXi servers using the client. Server 1 has 12 guests, server 2 has 9 guests but server 3 is showing no guests running on the server at all. So, I know that it is being managed by vSphere because if I select the manage server tab it warns me that it is being managed by another (vSphere) server. So from accessing the server in this manner where do I start to look for problems as from what I can see everything looks normal. Obviously I can't vmotion the guests across but how do I tell that it doesn't have a problem that is preventing it from participating in the cluster?
