      Dear All,


      I was reading the procedure t setup vCenter Server HA, identified that vCenter passive node & witness node require local datastore instead of shared one like Primary vCenter Server Appliance. Can any one enlighten me with the reason behind it. My environment is given below

      • vCenter Server Appliance 6.7
