Fault Tolerance on vCenter 6.5 and ESXi 6.5

Hi EE,

Is it normal on vCenter 6.5 and ESXi 6.5 the FT vm's to Start Fault Tolerance Secondary VM took about 1.5 hour to completed?

Our current production vCenter 6.0 with ESXi 5.1 turn on and Start Fault Tolerance Secondary VM will start immediately

Any tuning that I've missed out on vCenter 6.5 and ESXi 6.5.

During turn on the FT VM on vCenter 6.5 and ESXi 6.5 there is a fault tolerance compatibility warnings "The virtual NIC associated with the host has insufficient bandwidth for vSphere Fault Tolerance logging"

I know the recommendation for FT logging is 10GB bandwidth but not a requirement. Has anyone managed to set this up with version 6.5 and less than 10 GB bandwidth?

No it's not normal.

"The virtual NIC associated with the host has insufficient bandwidth for vSphere Fault Tolerance logging"

that is probably why, it too so long to create the "mirror.".

We don't have 10GBe, and it does not take that long.
