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..

you will need to look at the fault domain manager logs,

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.
