Check each Host Summary, sometimes Warnings and Alarms, do not show in alarms, but on the host summary page, so select each Host on the Cluster, Summary Page any issues ?

and sometimes, you get phantom errors, Red Alerts on clusters and VMs for no reason.

Which if you Reconfigure HA, or Enable and Disable HA and DRS, e.g. by removing the ticks in Cluster Settings, this will re-sync the cluster, and any issues with a Host with reveal itself.

NO, harm will come to any VMs by doing this they will still function, and not crash or restart.

Finally, if you suspect there is something or an issue, the issue will be in the fault domain manager logs, on each host check the fdm.log file in /var/log on each host.
