High availability is not supported on VMware.

As for other limitations under VMware, the following information is excerpted from the upcoming v 3.0 Admin Manual:

While the basic functionality of Guardian is not affected by running as a virtual appliance, the following limitations apply:

  • Guardian can use only the fixed disk space assigned to the virtual host during its installation: it is not possible to modify the size of the disks later, neither can Guardian be used in on-demand disk allocation scenarios.

  • Guardian currently does not comply with the VMware Ready program and does not have vmware-tools installed. As a result, Guardian does not support VMotion and it is not possible to integrate it into an existing VMware infrastructure.

  • High availability mode is not supported in VMware.

  • Hardware-related alerts and status indicators of Guardian may display inaccurate information, for example, display degraded RAID status.

  • The Bridge operation mode of Guardian cannot be used in VMware.
