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
I am following below mentioned link for procedure to setup vCenter Server HA. Kindly share useful material for the same as well.
In above link, it is explicitly mentioned that:
" Datastore clusters are not supported by vCenter HA deployment, select a standalone storage not member of any cluster and"
... require local datastore instead of shared ...
It's not about local, or shared datsastores, but "datastore clusters". Each node should reside on a different datastore, no matter whether it is local or shared.
