To protect the clustered Workspace ONE Access nodes from a host-level failure, configure an anti-affinity rule to run the virtual machines on different hosts in the default management vSphere cluster. You then configure a VM group to define the startup order to ensure that vSphere High Availability powers on the clustered Workspace ONE Access nodes in the correct order.

Procedure

  1. In a web browser, log in to the management domain vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client (https://<vcenter_server_fqdn>/ui).
  2. Select Menu > Hosts and Clusters.
  3. In the inventory expand <vCenter Server> Datacenter.
  4. Select the cluster and click the Configure tab.
  5. Create the anti-affinity rule for the clustered Workspace ONE Access virtual machines.
    1. Navigate to Configuration > VM/Host rules and click Add.
    2. Configure the settings and click OK.
