Can you force two VMs to run on different hosts?

Jump to solution

I'm looking to see if we can flag two VMs to never run on the same host as each other. I thought I had seen this ability in documentation a while back but can't seem to find it now.

Thanks for any help!

Hello.

If you use DRS, then you can use a DRS rule to "Seperate Virtual Machines." Go to the Cluster settings, Edit and then look in the VMware DRS-> Rules section to set it up.

Good Luck!
