Just a quick question hopefully…..been using Zerto for a while now and just wanted a firm answer to this…..
If we have 20 VM’s we want in a VPG, do we set the recovery host to a single host within the recover VMware cluster or set it as the recovery VMware Cluster. I ask this, as recently we performed a Failover Test and all 20 servers tried to power on the same host which as caused issues with storage & recovery SLA.
My view is to point to the VMware Cluster not a Host within the VMware cluster, however I asked this question to support over a year ago and they informed me there is no difference…..Does Zerto respect DRS when trying to power on VM’s within a VMware cluster? I can’t find anything in the Administration guide in regards to this….
When selecting a cluster for a recovery host Zerto selects any host inside the cluster randomly, we can’t control on which host it will reside. The decision is not based on workload balancing, just a random selection. Hope you find this helpful, thank you.
