VMware 5.5 HA and Host Isolation question
Posted on 2015-02-20
I hope you can help me understand HA and host isolation. I had a situation where a host was connected to a non-redundant network and lost both LAN and management network access at the same time.
The VMs did not shut down and restart on another host - now apparently this is normal as the host still had iscsi/storage access therefore VMs did not need to shut-down - please can you let me know if this is correct?
Host isolation response is configured to shut down VMs, what sort of failure needs to occur to make the host isolated so VMs power off and restart elsewhere?
