FT multi proc version 6.0 not enough bandwidth.

Hi,

I'm running a HA cluster with 4 hosts each with 4 x 1 GB NIC's verion 6.0. When I try to enable a vm for FT I get the warning the virtual nic associated with the host has insufficient bandwidth for vsphere fault tolerance logging attached is the exact error.

If I try to ignore the warning I am then unable to start the secondary vm. I've only read that 10 GB is reccommended but not a requirement. Has anyone managed to set this up with version 6 and less than 10 GB bandwidth?

yes, I have tested it with 1 Gbps VMNIC speed, worked well after ignoring warning about bandwidth requirements.

in your case, if seondary VM is not powering on, check if you have enough resources available to power on that secondary VM on host.

mainly because FT will raise your VM's memory reservation to it's allocation. (on primary and secondary both)
