HA agent on "myserver.mydomain.it" in cluster "name cluster" has an error

Hello,

from three days I receive the following error in one of two machines with VMware ESX, which together form a cluster.

The error says:

HA agent on HA agent on "myserver.mydomain.it" in cluster "name cluster" has an error

In which way can I resolve the problem?

Thank you

Simone

Hi Simone,

There are many reasons for such an issue. Is there any other error message in the host log file? The first thing to check is network configuration and name resolution. Can hosts ping each other with their short network names? Is the time synchronized to the same source on both machines?

When all seems OK, just retry to enable HA on the ESX.

Hope it helps

Regards

Franck

What do you mean with </span>"What about your HA issue"?

The screenshot present error messages about an iSCSI issue, not about HA. Did you check network and time on your host? Did you try to re-enable HA?

Okay, i have downloaded the SNMP walk tool on a server, this checks to see if it can contact the host in question via SNMP.

http://www.netcordia.com/community/files/folders/tools/entry102.aspx

but it keeps failing..

C:\Users\sami.a>snmpwalk -v1 -c PUBLIC 192.168.100.190 .1 >snmpwalk.txt

Timeout: No Response from 192.168.100.190

SNMP is working on the ESX HOST
