Running only 1 host

In my Vcenter i have 2 host. I create the workload 4 Tile 0 for the first ESX and i put the second host under maintenance mode while running the test. Should i set DoClusterMapping=0 instead of =1 and disable the Vmotion in that case??? What should i add exactly in VMMARK2.conf in order to disable Vmotion if needed???

This question was recently answered in this thread:

FYI, all changes should be done prior to starting the test.

Please don't forget to search prior to posting.

Thanks for the additionnal informations. I set INFRASTRUCTURELIST="Deploy" instead of "Deploy Vmotion SVmotion" and disable variables with prefix Vmotion ans SVmotion.

I still have errors related to VMapping, i put in the cluster only 1 host and the second host is out in order to run the test on a single host.
The ClusterVMmapping shows the following results:

Even i tried only to set DoClusterMapping=0 and let the default value for vmotion and svmotion but the same error remains in the result files.

Please zip up the entire results folder from your last run (Ex: Results_20120628325234_sometest) and attach it to this thread.

The reason the cluster mapping routines are still running is that although you've set it to zero, you failed to uncomment it in your VMMARK2.config.

###DoClusterMapping=0

should be

DoClusterMapping=0

Any line that starts with "#" is commented out and will be ignored by the parser.
