vSphere 6.5: vSphere HA What’s New – Part 4 – VM Restart Priorities

by Brian

For all vSphere HA 6.5 updates see the other parts of this series:


VM Restart Priorities

In the past, we’ve had 3 restart priorities that can be used with VM Overrides:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

However, as we introduced the Orchestrated Restart, and more customers are adding overrides for specific VMs, we felt it would be beneficial to add in two additional settings:

  • Lowest
  • Highest

In doing so, we give you even more flexibility to create restart order tiers.

*Note: When using tiers, all VMs in a single tier must restart before vSphere HA will move on to the next tier.

Obviously, this isn’t the most ground-breaking update, but it’s beneficial and I thought I’d throw this out there as an FYI for those who use, or are looking to use VM Overrides and VM Restart Priorities.
