    vSphere HA Waiting for cluster election to complete Operation timed out

    scerazy Expert

      I have enough of re-installing ESX5i (so far this was trhe quickes way to get it working on number of separate incidents - as a side not, vSphere4 just worked fine in my environment, without THAT MUCH fluffing about)

       

      So now I have a host which almost works (lastest upgrade to 515841), but will NOT get configured for HA

       

      It starts fine, get to the point:

       

      The vSphere HA availability state of this host has changed to Election

       

      and then gives "nice" Timed out

       

      This host can be dis/connected, pinged, has VM running on it, accesses all Datastores, yet will not do HA

       

      I went through all KB aricle:

       

      http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=2004429

       

      with no resolution

       

      Anybody has any more (useful) ideas?

       

      Thanks

       

      Seb
