    Are VMware Tools needed in HA?

    czaj Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I am planning VMware HA architecture which will be located in two DC, data will be synced via DB replication (via FC). Environment is planned for ensure HA for application which is running on VM. Due to application vendor restrictions I can't install VMware Tools on VMs. Regarding to that I have a question. Can you provide stable HA solution for application on VM without installing VMware Tools? Does in case of DC failure VMs will be started in second DC? What extra functions I am losing without VMware Tools installed on VM?

       

      I searched information about that on community portal and documentation but I didn't get clear explanation of my questions. I am planning to use VMware version 6.

       

      I would be grateful for clarification on this topic.

       

      Best regards.
