vSphere 5 – How to dismiss heartbeat datastore and network redundancy errors
Posted on 31 July 2012
In some of the lab testing I do I frequently don’t have all the required network or storage redundancies that vSphere wants to satisfy HA. Because of this I end up with the yellow warning triangle on the hosts. No big deal, however if I’m doing testing and want to be alerted to any issues that I may encounter, not having a persistent triangle makes that easier.
Fortunately VMware has a nice KB that outlines a way to ignore some of these common warnings.
Check out the KB here also. It includes the parameters for a bunch of other stuff that might be useful.
