Where is my ADVANCED OPTIONS button!!!!!

So… i was surprised today when i wanted to change the advanced HA settings on my cluster and i could not find the advanced options button in cluster HA section.

Looks funny huh ? Yeah, it is kinda funny, no button for me … But i saw after quick google search, that there are more people who have the same issues. I tried to do workarounds with screen resolution , but that did not help.. After an hour or so i found out that if you will change the font size option in windows by going to

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display

and changing the””Make text or other items smaller / bigger”, select smaller – 100% . reboot windows. It worked for me.

I hope i saved you a lot of time 😉

Summary tab error message about datastores hearbeat

In the esxi host i received a message:

The number of heartbeat datastores for host is 1, which is less than required: 2

In my case i had only 1 datastore, and i did not want to see this message so in order to get rid of that i used this kb:

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1006421

So basically, go to cluster HA settings, and click HA advanced settings button.

Add new advanced property:

das.ignoreinsufficienthbdatastore  with value set to true
