RHV failed to automatically restart highly available VM after unexpected host restart

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After abrupt host restart, a highly available virtual machine (HA VM) failed to be restarted and remained permanently down.
  • RHV-M tried to restart the VM only once and did not attempt to repeatedly restart the VM as expected when MaxNumOfTriesToRunFailedAutoStartVm is set to value 120.
