“Unable to apply DRS resource settings on host”

The above error can not be ignored and needs to be fixed. Otherwise, the cluster’s effectiveness can be drastically reduced. Will look at the fix in a nutshell. 

  • SSH into the host with root credentials and run the below commands (Host and vCenter agents)

/etc/init.d/hostd restart

/etc/init.d/vpxa restart

  • Then, restart all the management agents 

services.sh restart

  • Confirm whether both the Host and vCenter agent services are up and running. 

/etc/init.d/hostd status

/etc/init.d/vpxa status

This should fix the issue. But it will take 20-30 minutes to go away the alert.
