In addition to non fault tolerant virtual machines, you should have no more than four fault tolerant virtual machines (primaries or secondaries) on any single host. The number of fault tolerant virtual machines that you can safely run on each host is based on the sizes and workloads of the ESX/ESXi host and virtual machines, all of which can vary. If you are using NFS to access shared storage, use dedicated NAS hardware with at least a 1Gbit NIC to obtain the network performance required for Fault Tolerance to work properly. Ensure that a resource pool containing fault tolerant virtual machines has excess memory above the memory size of the virtual machines. Fault tolerant virtual machines use their full memory reservation. Without this excess in the resource pool, there might not be any memory available to use as overhead memory. VMware recommends that you use a maximum of 16 virtual disks per fault tolerant virtual machine.

5 To ensure redundancy and maximum Fault Tolerance protection, VMware recommends that you have a minimum of three hosts in the cluster. In a failover situation, this provides a host that can accommodate the new Secondary VM that is created. Fault Tolerance Interoperability Before configuring VMware Fault Tolerance, you should be aware of the features and products Fault Tolerance cannot interoperate with. Fault Tolerance and vsphere Features Not Supported The following vsphere features are not supported for fault tolerant virtual machines. Snapshots. Snapshots must be removed or committed before Fault Tolerance can be enabled on a virtual machine. In addition, it is not possible to take snapshots of virtual machines on which Fault Tolerance is enabled. Storage VMotion. You cannot invoke Storage VMotion for virtual machines with Fault Tolerance turned on. To migrate the storage, you should temporarily turn off Fault Tolerance, and perform the storage VMotion action. When this is complete, you can turn Fault Tolerance back on. DRS features. A fault tolerant virtual machine is automatically configured as DRS disabled. DRS does initially place a Secondary VM, however, DRS does not make recommendations or load balance Primary or Secondary VMs when load balancing the cluster. The Primary and Secondary VMs can be manually migrated during normal operation.

6 Other Features Incompatible with Fault Tolerance For a virtual machine to be compatible with Fault Tolerance, the Virtual Machine must not use the following features or devices. Table 3 1. Features and Devices Incompatible with Fault Tolerance and Corrective Actions Incompatible Feature or Device Symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) virtual machines. Only virtual machines that support a single vcpu are compatible with Fault Tolerance. Physical Raw Disk mapping (RDM). If you want to use Raw Disk Mapping (RDM) for your virtual disks, only virtual RDMs are supported. CD ROM or floppy virtual devices backed by a physical or remote device. Paravirtualized guests. USB and sound devices. N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV). NIC passthrough. Network interfaces for legacy network hardware. Virtual disks backed with thin provisioned storage or thick provisioned disks that do not have clustering features enabled. Hot plugging devices. Extended Page Tables/Rapid Virtualization Indexing (EPT/RVI). VMXNET3 driver. Corrective Action Reconfigure the virtual machine as a single vcpu. Many workloads have good performance configured as a single vcpu. Reconfigure virtual machines with physical RDMbacked virtual devices to use virtual RDMs instead. Remove the CD ROM or floppy virtual device or reconfigure the backing with an ISO installed on shared storage. If paravirtualization is not required, reconfigure the virtual machine without a VMI ROM. Remove these devices from the virtual machine. Disable the NPIV configuration of the virtual machine. This feature is not supported by Fault Tolerance so it must be turned off. While some legacy drivers are not supported, Fault Tolerance does support the VMXNET2 driver. You might need to install VMware tools to access the VMXNET2 driver instead of vlance in certain guest operating systems. When you turn on Fault Tolerance, the conversion to the appropriate disk format is performed by default. The virtual machine must be in a powered off state to take this action. The hot plug feature is automatically disabled for fault tolerant virtual machines. To hot plug devices, you must momentarily turn off Fault Tolerance, perform the hot plug, and then turn on Fault Tolerance. EPT/RVI is automatically disabled for virtual machines with Fault Tolerance turned on. Remove the VMXNET3 driver and replace it with a supported driver. A few examples of the supported

7 Paravirtualized SCSI (PVSCSI) adapter. drivers are the e1000 driver, the VMXNET2 driver, and the VMXNET driver. Remove the PVSCSI adapter and replace it with a supported adapter. A few examples of the supported adapters are the LSILogic adapter and the BusLogic driver. Fault Tolerance Configuration Requirements For VMware Fault Tolerance (FT) to perform as expected, the configuration of your cluster, hosts, and virtual machines must meet specific requirements. Cluster Prerequisites Unlike VMware HA which, by default, protects every virtual machine in the cluster, VMware Fault Tolerance is enabled on individual virtual machines. For a cluster to support VMware Fault Tolerance, the following prerequisites must be met: VMware HA must be enabled on the cluster. Host Monitoring should also be enabled. If it is not, when Fault Tolerance uses a Secondary VM to replace a Primary VM no new Secondary VM is created and redundancy is not restored. Host certificate checking must be enabled for all hosts that will be used for Fault Tolerance. See Enable Host Certificate Checking. Each host must have a VMotion and a Fault Tolerance Logging NIC configured. See Configure Networking for Host Machines. At least two hosts must have processors from the same compatible processor group. While Fault Tolerance supports heterogeneous clusters (a mix of processor groups), you get the maximum flexibility if all hosts are compatible. See the VMware knowledge base article at for information on supported processors. All hosts must have the same ESX/ESXi version and patch level. All hosts must have access to the virtual machines' datastores and networks. To confirm the compatibility of the hosts in the cluster to support Fault Tolerance, run profile compliance checks. Note: VMware HA includes the resource usage of Fault Tolerance Secondary VMs when it performs admission control calculations. For the Host Failures Cluster Tolerates policy, a Secondary VM is assigned a slot,

8 and for the Percentage of Cluster Resources policy, the Secondary VM's resource usage is accounted for when computing the usable capacity of the cluster. See VMware HA Admission Control. Host Prerequisites A host can support fault tolerant virtual machines if it meets the following requirements. A host must have processors from the FT compatible processor group. See the VMware knowledge base article at A host must be certified by the OEM as FT capable. Refer to the current Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) for a list of FT supported servers (see The host configuration must have Hardware Virtualization (HV) enabled in the BIOS. Some hardware manufacturers ship their products with HV disabled. The process for enabling HV varies among BIOSes. See the documentation for your hosts' BIOSes for details on how to enable HV. If HV is not enabled, attempts to power on a fault tolerant virtual machine produce an error and the virtual machine does not power on. Review the Host Configuration Section of Fault Tolerance Best Practices to select host options that best support VMware Fault Tolerance. Virtual Machine Requirements Before Fault Tolerance can be turned on, a virtual machine must meet minimum requirements. Virtual machine files must be stored on shared storage. Acceptable shared storage solutions include Fibre Channel, (hardware and software) iscsi, NFS, and NAS. Virtual machines must be stored in virtual RDM or virtual machine disk (VMDK) files that are thick provisioned with the Cluster Features option. If a virtual machine is stored in a VMDK file that is thin provisioned or thick provisioned without clustering features enabled and an attempt is made to enable Fault Tolerance, a message appears indicating that the VMDK file must be converted. Users can accept this automatic conversion (which requires the virtual machine to be powered off), allowing the disk to be converted and the virtual machine to be protected with Fault Tolerance. The amount of time needed for this conversion process can vary depending on the size of the disk and the host's processor type. Virtual machines must be running on one of the supported guest operating systems. See the VMware knowledge base article at for more information.
