I have a 3 host HA cluster that I'm testing FT on. When I turn on FT for a particular VM, it enables correctly. The problem that I'm experiencing is when I actually install a manmade fault. For instance, if I hard power the host that the primary VM resides, it does not automatically power on the secondary VM on another host. Any clue on what could be causing this and how I can rectify it? We are running ESXI 6U2.
Also, am I understanding this correctly....FT is a feature of HA....so in order to turn on FT, I must have an HA cluster with HA enabled.
Thanks for your help in advance!!
have you enable the vMotion on all of your host or not ,the reason for not power on the second VM in vMotion , for your information you don't need to power on the second VM its auto Power on
when the Primary VM on and also check your VM must be on shared Data Store . you are testing FT on Live Hosts or Workstation ?
