I have two ESXI 6.5 hosts, that I have running a couple test VMs on each.  I want to create a cluster by combining the two ESXI hosts.  

Question:  Will I lose the VMs on each of the ISXI hosts by creating a VMware cluster with two ISXI host each having two VMS running on them?
Or will the VMs remain after the cluster has been made?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the guests will stay on the respective hosts
vCenter will just add certain features for failover and DRS (if you have the license for it) if they are on shared storage between the two hosts
