we got a vSphere Cluster
with 2 Clusternodes.
We added a new
physical switch to our network, which causes a renewal of the spanning tree
algorithm. The consequence was, that HA on each host meant that the hosts were
isolated, so that all VM´s were shut down.
Are there any parameters which causes a shut-down delay for the vm´s, so that
theres enough time for HA to get the heartbeat again... which again wouldn´t
cause HA to shutdown the VM´s.
If not, we thought about an alternative solution:
We thought about a second Service Console (new vSwitch) on the Hosts, which is attached to a separate
physical switch, which is totally isolated from the main-network (view attachment). Do You think that would that work? Wouldn´t that may be the better solution for our problem?
