    Any state stored on server's local storage?

    BTim Novice

      Here's the scenario. I have a number of servers running ESXi 4 with vSphere set up for HA. All VMs are stored on shared storage somewhere, so nothing other than the ESXi install exists locally on the server. So when a server fails the HA stuff takes care of bringing the VMs up on the other servers.

       

      My question is about the local server's storage. Is there anything important stored there? If the server's local storage has failed, or the server needs completely replacing, is it just a case of reinstalling ESXi from scratch?

       

      Thanks for your help.
