Hi there,

you can't bind a VM to a host with only HA, but you can set the VM restart priority to "Disabled" so the VM won't be restarted on any other host in case of isolation.

Another option is using DRS and it's host affinity rules, but that requires an Enterprise license.

If you find this information useful, please award points for "correct" or "helpful".

Have a look at this link for info on host affinity rules, if you have DRS, http://frankdenneman.nl/2010/12/vm-host-affinity-rules-should-or-must/
