HA error on one ESX server : No Active Primaries Found
This error (: No Active Primaries Found) appeared on one of my servers last week and I have been unable to solve the problem. It appeared following some down-time arranged to install new switches to service the blade chassis which is home to the ESX blades.
I have a cluster of 5 blade servers, all running ESX 3.0.2, 63195. They have been configured for HA on VirtualCenter 2.0.2 for the past 6 months without any issues. The cluster hosts 21 VMs and is nowhere near capacity. I have searched this community but have been unable to find a solution. Below are the steps I have tried so far.
1. Disable HA on the cluster and then re-enable - No success
2. Reboot the blade - No success
3. Run "service mgmt-vmware restart" on the blade - No success
4. Remove blade completely from the cluster and add it back in - No success
The other solution given is to completely destroy the cluster and then add all the hosts back in one by one. This is not an option for me as I have live virtual servers running on the blades. Can anyone assist?
