Avoiding virtual hard disk failure to stop the virtual machine

This post was originally published on this site



I would like to know if some virtual hard disks of the virtual machine (vmdk or RDM) can be marked so that they don’t stop the virtual machine if hey become unavailable.


I have a virtual machine with two additional virtual hard disks (in this case vmdk but it would be the same for RDM) from two LUNs located in two different storage systems. The virtual machine performs a software RAID-1 with these two virtual hard disks. So, I would like my virtual machine not to stop if one of these storage systems fails and thus the LUN where the hard disk resides becomes unavailable.


Is this possible?


Thanks in advance,
