das. options have been around since 2.0!

and many have started to be deprecated and removed, and new ones for 6.0 created!

e.g. 6.0 only - das.config.fdm.reportfailoverfailevent

Options No Longer Supported

■das.consoleUser
■das.consoleNode
■das.consolePerm
■das.primaryCount
■das.checkVmStateDelay
■das.trace
■das.traceLevel
■das.traceOutput
■das.preferredPrimaries
■das.disableUWSwapRequirement
■das.sensorPollingFreq
■das.bypassNetCompatCheck
■das.defaultfailoverhost
■das.failureDetectionTime
■das.failureDetectionInterval

Shall I test you on which ones no longer work! (see above!)

so you want to know, what the letters, das stand for ?

You asked....

das.* -> cluster level advanced settings

and you might as well have the complete set

fdm.* -> FDM (Fault Domain Manager) host level advanced settings

vpxd.* -> vCenter level advanced settings

because VMware HA, used to be known in the old days as Distributed Availability Service!

So das.* settings are at the cluster level, fdm.* settings are at the host level.
