comment VMware ESXi - what happens when unable to create a secondary instance of a VM for fault tolerance
In short, yes. I'm thinking the VM is either considered failed or FT has something up its sleeve where it will do a last ditch effort to just restart the VM on the current host. I think it is the first outcome, but I'm not positive.

comment VMware ESXi - what happens when unable to create a secondary instance of a VM for fault tolerance
Initially, when a VM is configured for FT, a secondary instance is created for it. When the primary fails, the secondary instance takes over to become the primary and another secondary instance is created for that one. When there is no more resources to create another secondary instance when x failures occur, is it correct to assume that the VM is failed at this point and nothing else can be done about it? Hope that is clearer. Thanks!

comment VMware High Availability questions
Thanks for your input! It certainly helps answering some of my questions. However, I'm still not 100% sold on the HA and TL being only geared towards recovery of host failures. If you look here (pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-55/…), it also lists ability to do monitoring of hosts, VMs, and applications. Maybe I'm still missing something?
