    vmware drs

    nimicyy Novice


      in cluster drs the VM that start will run on the esx host where are resources.right?

      in time if the workload on the host increase much then this VM will be moved automatically (if the policy is full automation) on other host.?

          Yes, a VM will be started on the host that has sufficient resources to allow it to run. As VM usage varies over time, DRS will attempt to automatically balance VMs across hosts in the cluster.


          For more specifics, i can highly recommend "Clustering Deep Dive" by Frank Denneman, Duncan Epping & Niels Hagoort. Best of all, you can get the PDF for free
