PSA - Setting VMware HA right...

backtothefuture May 26, 2009

Here is just a word if you are gonna setup VMware HA.  Have your forward and reverse DNS setup correctly.

On my old team I received a lot of HA questions and 60% were solved either by correcting simple DNS errors, or bypassing them totally and going with Hosts files. The other 30% were solved by Networking (see links below) or completely resetting the cluster up because it was setup wrong from the start (RTFM people).

Thanks for looking, now back to our regular scheduled bike talk.


FYI – Some cool HA info that I use all the time:

VirtualCenter 2.5.0 Update 2 gives error: Incompatible HA Networks

Advanced Settings for VMware HA
