  • 1.  vSAN hosts - Reboot required

    Posted Sep 30, 2020 09:20 AM

    I have 6 hosts in a vSAN stretched cluster. In the summary tab of all hosts "reboot required" is indicated. Why is that?   No updates or patches have been done recently.

    Hello Niyot1​,

    Welcome to Communities.

    This issue is not related to vSAN and thus you or a moderator should move this to the appropriate sub-forum (vSphere).

    There can be a number of reasons why this message may appear on hosts:

    - Staged updates.

    - False positive messages as a result of vSphere replication in some older versions:

    VMware Knowledge Base

    - Enabling or changing IPv6 settings.

    - When using Host Profiles/Auto deploy and making changes to these.

    - Configuration of some VMware products e.g. NSX via SDDC/VCF workflows.

    - Probably a multitude of other things I am not aware of.

    Hi TheBobkin

    Thanks for your response.  I am not using replication in the environment so that does not apply here.

    The others aren't really applicable either, but as you mentioned it could be a host of other things. the issue does go away after a reboot.

    so thats good.
