In a fully automated DRS cluster, what can be done to ensure that a specific virtual machine (VM) does not migrate automatically to another host?
set the DRS VM options report_section = "8" for the specific VM to Partially Automated
use the Affinity Wizard to specify manual automation
do nothing because the DRS cluster must be put in Partially Automated mode to allow this level of control
set the DRS VM rule to "keep on this host"
Need help to find the setting Report_Section = "8" in VC
This DRS settings is made to be added in the "Edit Settings" of a cluster on the Tab "Summary" go to "VmWare DRS" and on the down right corner you have "Advanced Options", when opened, you have a row "Option" and a row "Value"
"report_section" is to be put in "Option" row and the "8" is to be put in Value. It apparently stops Vmotioning between all nodes of the cluster.
