In this video, Russ Long shows us how to create a VM to Host affinity rule. Learn how to tie a group of virtual machines to hosts within your DRS cluster.
- [Instructor] In this lab we are going to construct…a VM affinity rule between LabVM3 and LabVM4…and tie that to host.212.…So we're going to go ahead and select our cluster here.…DRS cluster.…We're going to select Manage.…And then we're going to select Settings.…Now in this little left-hand pane here,…we're going to scroll down,…it's already all the way down, let me scroll back up…to what you would see.…I'm going to scroll down to VM/Host Groups, VM/Host Rules.…
This where we're going to be spending our time.…Now as you can see, we're on VMHost Rules…and you saw that rule we set up earlier,…the VM1toVM2affinityrule.…We got to do this a little different now.…We have to create groups in order to make this work.…So let's create a VM Group first.…We're going to go ahead and click Add.…Now this group we're creating…is going to include LabVM3 and LabVM4.…So we have to name this something…that's easily identifiable.…
So let's go ahead and call this TestLabVMGroup.…Okay?…And the Type, of course, from the drop down menu…is AVM Group.…
