If a host or host component in a stretched cluster fails, it is recommended that you replace the host with a new host.

Prerequisites

  • Check the health of the cluster.

    See "Check vSAN Health" in Administering VMware vSAN.

Procedure

  1. Remove the failed host from the cluster.
  2. Expand the cluster to add the new host to the cluster.

Results

vSAN automatically rebuilds the stretch cluster.
