HA Testing

Hi Floks,

I want to test the HA on my enviroment,I need some valuable  suggestion and ideas.I have an idea like poweroff the host or disable the network.

is it possiable to test the HA thru POWERCLI scripting or PShell.

note :Ensure nodes do not run on the same server (affinity configurations)

appreciate your help..

Thank you,

Pat.

Assuming you have physical access to the server, a good way to test is to disable DRS (to ensure important machines don't get put on the machine to be tested), put some junk VMs on the host to be tested, and then just start yanking cables to the test host and seeing how HA responds. Try one event by pulling power, one by pulling network, one by pulling storage, etc.

Not sure I've heard of a way to test HA with PowerCLI.
