HA is set on the Hosts; if the vSphere server is unavailable will HA still continue to function?

Jump to solution

Hello i found the following question on the Simonlong page and i was sure it was incorrect.

Which of the following are valid reasons for deploying vCenter Server in a virtual machine (choose 3)?

A. vCenter Server must be deployed as a virtual machine to be migrated using VMotion

B. vCenter Server must be deployed as a virtual machine to support failover using Site

Recovery Manager

C. vCenter Server must be deployed as virtual machines to join a Linked Mode group

D. vCenter Server must be deployed as a virtual machine to be protected by High Availability

E. vCenter Server must be deployed as a virtual machine to back it up using vCenter Data

Recovery

Answer: ADE

I was unsure D was correct.

So my question is, when HA is set on the Hosts; if the vSphere server is unavailable will HA still continue to function?

VMware HA is intalled on the ESX side and can work also without vCenter Server.

vCenter Server is needed to configure each host for HA, but then (for HA) is not necessary.
