If a failure occurs within a VSA cluster with two members, you might have to restart the VSA cluster service to ensure that the VSA cluster works as expected.

The VSA cluster service is used only if you created a VSA cluster with two members.


  1. In the vCenter Server machine, select Start > Run, type services.msc, and click OK.
  2. Right-click VMware VSA Cluster Service and select Restart.


The VSA cluster service starts.

What to do next

On the VSA Manager page, verify that the status of the VSA cluster service is now Online. If the status is Offline, click Repair VSA Cluster Service in the upper-right corner to re-establish the connection between the VSA cluster and the VSA cluster service.
