Use the vSphere Web Client to examine whether a component is in the absent or degraded failure state.
If a failure occurs in the cluster, vSAN marks the components for an object as absent or degraded based on the failure severity.
- In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the vSAN cluster.
- On the Monitor tab, click vSAN and select Virtual Disks.
The home directories and virtual disks of the virtual machines in the cluster appear.
- Select a virtual machine object.
- On the Physical Disk Placement tab, examine the Component State property of the components for the selected object.
If a failure has occurred in the vSAN cluster, the Component State property is equal to Absent or Degraded.
