  • 1.  vSphere HA unsuccessfully failed over VM

    Posted Apr 24, 2012 09:54 AM

    Hi,

    I have a ESXi 5 two Host cluster with HA enabled. There is no VM monitoring enabled. One VM had a problem and I got the following events -

    vSphere HA unsuccessfully failed over <VM Name> on Host in cluster. vSphere HA will retry if the maximum number of attempts has not been exceeded.

    The Host did not fail and no other VM's are affected.

    Thanks,

    Somehow something happened to the virtual machine and HA tried to restart it various times. Difficult to say why/what happened exactly. I would recommend to contact VMware support if you want to have a root cause analysis.
