Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video DRS and maintenance mode, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll explain…how DRS works in maintenance mode.…At times we may need to place an ESXi host…into maintenance mode if we need to reboot it.…So for example, let's say we're using Update Manager…to perform some critical host updates on our ESXI host.…We have these critical host updates…that need to get pushed out,…and so we choose to stage these to an ESXi host,…and then to remediate that ESXi host.…And maybe that remediate involves a reboot.…
And this is one of many circumstances…in which you may potentially have to reboot an ESXi host.…But before you can reboot your host,…you should always put it in maintenance mode.…Now what does maintenance mode mean?…Well, that means that no running virtual machines…can be present on this ESXi host.…So if we wanna place ESXi02 into maintenance mode,…we would need to take all the virtual machines…that are running on that host,…and VMotion them to some other host.…
This is the part that DRS can automate for us.…When we place a host in maintenance mode,…
