VSAN Cluster Member Maintenance Mode Options



Before you shut down, reboot, or disconnect a host that is a member of a Virtual SAN cluster, you must put it in maintenance mode. When you place a host in maintenance mode, you can select a specific evacuation mechanism. Note that when any member node of a Virtual SAN cluster enters maintenance mode, the cluster capacity is automatically reduced as the member node no longer contributes storage to the cluster.
Prerequisites
Check that your environment has the capabilities required for the option you select.
Procedure
1
Right-click the host and select Enter Maintenance Mode.
2
Select one of the evacuation modes and click OK.
