Hi guys - what the topic says.
I'm preparing my VM env for production and that's one of the things I'm trying.

Without using Fault Tolerance, it takes 15-20 pings for the VM to automatically start on a different host.

I have a pretty beefy setup with 4 powerful hosts and Compellent so if the above is not right, I would suspect a wrong config rather than H/W bottleneck.

I'm still new to VM, please try to keep it simple.

Thanks
