I have 8 Vmware host but i have to make one rule i having trouble with.
Name of my virtual host is VmHost1 to 8
Name of the 6 machine i have to make this config for DMS-01 to DMS-06
I have 6 virtual machine that should be on host VmHost5 but only this 6 virtual machine should be on this host and if the VmHost5 goes down the Virtual machine should move to another host an always be on the same, host.
Can anybody help me with this?
You can create VM-VM affinity rules in the Cluster Settings dialog box to specify whether selected individual virtual machines should run on the same host or be kept on separate hosts.
Create VM group with the specified virtual machines and configure should, but are not required to run on those Hosts.
I recommended to use should run rules instead of must run rules.
A must run rule limits HA, DRS and the user in such a way that a virtual machine may not be powered on or moved to a ESXi host that does not belong to the associated DRS host group.
