I have 2 identical dell server hosts for licensing i have the Vsphere essentials PLUS kit with Essentials PLUS licenses for my hosts and essentials license for vcenter
I have installed the DELL specific ESXI build. spun up 4 windows 2016 servers on one of my ESXI hosts. i have installed vcenter on one of the nested windows VMs. Vcenter is running fine and i added my datacenter then a new cluster inside of vcenter. added both my hosts and VMs to the cluster. Set the cluster to use VMWare HA and when i pull netowrk cables from one host i do see that Vcenter sees that the host fails and changes the host to master.
My issues now are the errors in the configuration issues page (cluster > monitor Tab > Configuration issues ) I have added a screenshot of my errors. One is for the log files not being stored to persistant storage, one is for management network missing redundancy AND the other is for the number of shared datastores is 0 when it needs to be 2.
My big question here is the datastore numbers what do i need to add/configure so that HA will use the datastore on the hosts? to correct this? Am i missing a way to add them? I could see the error being that it has 1 (because each host has 1 datastore) but why 0? From online research it states that i need Shared network storage but I am trying to accomplish this without that need for that.
Any help on the data store issue of the other 2 errors would be greatly appreciated
The goal is to have HA running so that if one host fails the other will pick up and become live
