With HA, no you cannot, it uses a built-in algorithm to determine this..

Order of VM restart

Restart only powered on VMs that are HA-enabled. VMs with higher priority will get started first.

Which Host?

Host Failover Sequence Algorithm of HA

•In VC2 , goes alphabetically through host list, picks the first host that has enough capacity to accommodate a VM.

•In VC2.1, picks the host with the most unreserved capacity.

Does the VC 2.1 means VC 2.0.1?
