VMware Fault Tolerance (FT) - How to maintain HA during a reboot?
Posted on 2017-11-14
I have setup FT on a VM in VMware 6.5. The objective was to have this server always available. However, after applying Windows updates when I reboot the server, the 'failover VM' does not seem to take over. Is this limitation of FT - that high availability is there only for unexpected hardware failure, not for software maintenance operations?
Is MS Cluster the only solution in this scenario? Thanks.
