I already did in this post about what’s new in vSphere 6.5 and I did so in the Stretched Cluster guide. It has always been possible to set a restart priority for VMs, […]

I had many requests for an updated version of this paper, so the past couple of weeks I have been working hard. The paper was outdated as it was last updated around the vSphere 6.0 timeframe, and it was only a minor update. I looked at every single section and added in new statements and […]

Can you use the management IPs as the isolation address for HA?


Advertise here with BSA

There was a question on VMTN this week about the use of the management IP’s in a “smaller” cluster as the isolation address for vSphere HA.
