Okay. Now the migration has been completed so we can verify
when seven Clone one is now running on 10.100
and when seven is now running on 200.
So let's do a little bit of clean up here. We're gonna go back to our settings,
natural rules, and we can get rid of this rule. We no longer need it.
Well, go ahead and click. Yes.
Now we want to create a rule
tell de arrest that a particular VM should always run
or should not run or must not run. You have those different choices
on a particular host. So I can say, for instance,
that I want Win seven Clone one
to always run on host 200.
So I'm still in my rules area of the cluster settings. I'll click add when add a new rule
and we'll call this rule
It's good to be descriptive with your rule names so that you know what you've created when you go back later and look at this
virtual machines to host is what we want to pick
and you'll notice that the de arrest lets you pick or let you designate groups.
I don't have any V EMS in a group. I don't have any hosting a group yet, so we'll go to
this tab DRS. Group's manager
first, I'll create a group of virtual machines.
and we'll call this group
when. Seven. Clone one.
We're only putting one virtual machine in this group. We're just doing a very simple demonstration here,
but obviously you could make much more complex setups. As I mentioned earlier, you could group together
virtual machines of a certain
performance characteristics like Web servers or
database servers or email servers. That kind of thing. We're just gonna pick one V. M. It's now in. The group will click okay,
and similarly with the hosts,
this is under the host TRS groups.
We're gonna call this
That's the only host we want in the group.
So we'll click. Okay there,
Now my rules created.
So when seven clone on host 200 I'll click. Okay.
And if I run the arrest, I should get a recommendation.
That tells me that win seven clone.
should be moved from 0.100 dot 200 to satisfy the host affinity.
so I can go ahead and click,
Get that process started
and this will take a little while to run.
But it's fairly quick.
Okay, so that's completed.
that the Wind clone or Win seven Clone one is no longer running on host 100
and is now in fat running back on host 200 proving that the
the V EMS to host rule works as we expect.
So let's go in and do a little bit of clean up as we did before.
Go ahead and remove that rule,
and I can go ahead and remove these groups because I no longer require them.
Okay, so that concludes
Lab 21. So we've seen how
with fail overs and with affinity and anti affinity rules as well as
Buying V EMS to particular hosts
in next lab will be working with
so we'll install that
and see how the cluster settings need to be modified
will create a patch baseline.
We'll attach the baseline, look for updates and then stage the patches to be installed or or remediated
Thanks. And I'll see you in the next lab.
