I tried out the new function to shutdown my 2-node vsan cluster via the new button in vcenter server appliance.
The shutdown worked and all the hosts are off. Now when I restart the hosts I see no option to restart the cluster.
Is this a bug?I still see the option shutdown cluster where I would have expected to see the re-start cluster button.
Any advice on how to get the vsan up again?
Is vCenter running on the same hosts?
No vcenter server is on a different host as is the witness appliance.
okay, so what specifically is not working?
After reboot of the hosts I do not have the option to re-start the cluster
Found out what happened.
If you shutdown the vsan cluster and leaving the host that contains vcenter and the witness powered on the re-start cluster button is enabled.
When you also shutdown the host containing vcenter, witness appliance then it does not work anymore after re-boot of all hosts.
I was hoping to be able to remove the retreat mode advanced setting in vcenter due to this new feature but I am going to put it back in.
Don't know if it's a bug or it's intended to work like that.
