This might be a Sun question but is there an agent out there be installed on an ESX 3.0 server (Sun x4440 or x4600), which will trigger a VMware DRS HA event if a hardware failure is detected that reduces the redundancy of the system, or will require downtime to repair?
DRS or HA?
HA is triggered (by default) when service console IP is not reachable from "master HA" ESX host(s)
DRS is triggered based on DRS "rules" (number of stars)
the only way to trigger HA is an host failure or network isolation during a lapse of time...
I think that probably you can trigger a vMotion of machines scripting with powershell (with a script that poll for HW failure...maybe...)
I don't know if this resolve your question... pls be more specific.
