To protect the cross-region Workspace ONE Access nodes from a host-level failure, configure an affinity rule to run the virtual machines on different hosts in the first vSphere cluster of the Management domain. After that, you configure a VM group to define the startup order to ensure the vSphere High Availability powers on the cross-region Workspace ONE Access cluster members in the correct order.

Procedure

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

  2. In the Hosts and clusters inventory, expand the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local tree and expand the sfo01-m01dc data center.
  3. Select the sfo01-m01-mgmt01 cluster and click the Configure tab.
  4. Create the anti-affinity rule for the cross-region Workspace ONE Access virtual machines.
    1. In the left pane, select Configuration > VM/Host rules and click Add.
    2. In the Create VM/Host rule dialog box, configure these settings and click OK.
