we configure a cluster with two hosts with vcenter server on appliance on host esxi1
the pb is when the hosts having the vcenter go down all the cluster goes down
is there any ideas on this pb
Very strange behavior, anyway can you check if the VM of VCSA are HA Protected on the Summary tab of the VM and if the HA failover is not disabled for the VCSA on the cluster HA configuration ?
Check the following:
- Right Click Cluster
- Edit Settings
- Virtual Machine Options
- Virtual Machine Settings > VM Restart Priority
Make sure the vCenter VM Restart Priority is not Disabled... and I will recommend you change to High, cause if there is not many resources available on the host2, maybe the vCenter fail to restart due the insufficient resources on that host.
this a new instalation two Dell Server Power edge R620 and there is only two virtual machine one Windows 2008 for the test and the other is vcenter and we put the test machine on one host and the vcenter appliance on the other host (there is a still a lot of free ressource)
i just verify the virtual machine options the restart level is on high
