To protect the vRealize Log Insight virtual machines from a host-level failure, configure vSphere DRS to run the virtual machines on different hosts in the first cluster in the management domain.

Use an anti-affinity rule for the vRealize Log Insight virtual machines. This rule configuration accommodates the case when you place a host from the management cluster in maintenance mode.


  1. In a Web browser, log in to the management domain vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.

  3. Select the sfo-m01-cl01 cluster and click the Configure tab.
  4. In the left pane, select Configuration > VM/Host rules.
