comment vCenter 5.1 — adding v5.0 host doesn't bring in templates
Perfect, thanks! Didn't realize that these were actually kept along with vCenter Server. A quick browse fixed it!

Interestingly enough, it appears that powering down the VM before applying FT was what I needed to do this. I may have done it differently initially. After confirming, I'll post the answer. Thanks for your help!

@TheCleaner thanks for suggesting the additional options to explore. I read in a a support article that Automatic sometimes doesn't work. We're using intel Xeon processors. Our main system is a Dell R720 and the second is a Dell R520. Both have Xeon E5s (E5-2640 in the R720 vs E5-2430 in the R520). I will attempt to power cycle the VM as well.

@TheCleaner also, please see updated question. I reset the VM to the same settings that worked the first time but it still won't turn FT on. My guess is it's already on still (from the first time) but vCenter is confused somehow. No idea how to verify that, though.

Normally I would, except that now the only option in the fault tolerance menu is "turn fault tolerance on". It was already previously turned on, and I executed the test without using this option (which I will consider next time). It appears VMWare thinks it is no longer fault tolerant. And I can't change the CPU/MMU options without restarting. Which means 2 restarts for a VM whenever a fault occurs to reconfigure FT. Seems like a bug / issue.

This was exactly it and fixed the problem. Thanks for the concise answer! To round it out, do you have a link to that doc or the name of it? I think others might benefit from having the point of reference.

Thanks for that tip! I'm using chrome; didn't think it could be the browser. I'll check tomorrow and see if that's it.

@t1nt1n when attempting to browse to that site, it appears that nothing is there. have tried http/https and IP/FQDN in the browser to access that port. Have also tried accessing this url both remotely and locally. Can you provide some more insight into why you're suggesting these steps?
