In this video, Russ Long talks about the different Affinity rule options within vSphere. Learn about the different affinity rule options within your DRS cluster and how it can be applied.
- [Instructor] In our DRF clusters,…it sometimes will help performance if we can keep…VMs together or tied to a specific host.…In some cases, we may even want to force separation.…Affinity rules allow us to bind certain VMs together…or to a host; these rules we put in place…allow for granular control of how VMs are moved,…even in the case of a fluid environment, such as DRS.…Before we can even begin to construct affinity…or anti-infinity rules within the cluster,…we will need to create groups.…
Now in order to do this, you should've pre-planned…your affinity rules, laying out what VMs…and what hosts are going to be participating.…Now first, host groups.…Now these are only required when we are creating…a VM to host affinity or anti-affinity rule.…We will choose a host, or multiple hosts,…we want to participate in the rule.…VM groups, however, will be required…for any affinity rule you create.…You will identify the exact VMs…you want to participate in the rule you are creating.…
I do recommend you create a separate group…
