No HA Option For Virtual Desktop (RHEV3.0)

Latest response

RHEV3.0

I have enabled HA for the cluster and fence one of the hypervisor nodes with running VMs to test HA. All VMs except a Virtual Desktop(WinXP) were restarted on another hypervisor node as expected. When I check VM's setting of Virtual Desktop, I don't see any place to configure HA.(For Server VMs, I can find it in VM Properties).

  1. Doesn't HA support Virtual Desktop?
  2. If supported, where do I have to configure?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Thurein, 

Currently in Rhev 3.0/3.1 there is not a option to set a desktop vm as a HA vm. There currently is a RFE open to see if this option can also be integrated into the desktop vm options inside of the Admin Portal. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=822065

Thanks

HA can be used only with Servers. The only option right now is to recreate the vm as a Server vm. You may also contact Support to check whether the current vm can be converted to Server vm or not by changing database entries.
