Use the vSphere Web Client to examine whether a virtual machine is healthy. A virtual machine is considered as healthy when a replica of the VM object and more than 50 percent of the votes for an object are available.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the Virtual SAN cluster.
  2. On the Monitor tab, click Virtual SAN and select Virtual Disks.
    The home directories and virtual disks of the virtual machines in the cluster appear.
  3. For a virtual machine object, examine the value of the Operational State property.
    If the Operational State is Unhealthy, the vSphere Web Client indicates the reason for the unhealthy state in brackets.
