HA Monitoring error when un-suspending.

I have some  lab VM's that i have set to suspend in the evening and then power back on in the morning.  The task works fine but when it powers on in the morning the VM shows a "vsphere HA virtual machine monitoring error"

Is it possible to permanently ignore or suppress it?

Is this the Suspend function, e.g. next to Power Off, Reset ?

If so, it's unnatural for servers/workstations to be suspended, I would recommend a Shutdown/Power Off.

Because this is when VMs become HA Protected at Power On.

Do the VMs in question have VMware Tools installed ?

It's giving you an error because of VMware Tools heart beat.

You could disable the alarm.... or power off, rather than suspend.

Andrew,
Thanks for the clarification. They do have VM Ware tools installed.  I will change it to power off and test it out.

I just changed one and did power off and powered it on 15 mins later.  That worked.

Yes, HA gets confused - Power off and Power On, will re-enable HA Protection.

Glad to help out with your question, have a good day.
