I have 3 host in esxi 5.5 host and each time I remove and then enable the HA again, one of the host keeps getting the alarm saying vSphere HA Host Status.
Which had a red alert. I have tried redoing the HA but it keeps coming back.

it just seems like the one host is having an issue with the hA for some reason...
I was just redoing the HA to see if it cleared the issue..

fdm.log and vmkernel.log

Even though you are getting an HA error is HA working on this HA? I am wondering if the error could be a false positive.

No I found the issue..
There were two nics for the mgmt and one of them was on the wrong vlan and thus causing the lack of communication between the host..
Once i changed the connection to the correct vlan, all was good.
