I have a environment where my workload cluster is stretched across 2 physical location. 1st DC is active and 2nd DC is passive. However the management and workload cluster are streched across.
4 Hosts are in DC1 and 4 hosts in DC2. Total 8 hosts in streched cluster.
With VRA 8.1 i can chose cloud zone with specific cluster (if DRS enabled), not hosts.
So if i am provisioning VM using blueprint in vra 8.1 the provisining is happening on cluj\ster level and based on performance it choses any host , sometimes of DC2 also.
I want my provisioning to get limited to DC1 hosts only from vRA 8.1
I tried a lot but not getting any option on vra 8.1 on how to restrict this provisioning on limited no of hosts.
Agreed - affinity rules are the best way to pin a VM to a specific host.
We are attempting to do something similar. For licensing reasons, we have a "Keep Together" VM/Host rule to consolidate a subset of VMs to as few hosts as possible. However I am not a javscript wizard and I am struggling with getting vRO to add newly provisioned VMs to this existing VC Cluster host rule.
