We are 'greenfield' in terms of Solarwinds deployment and are looking to deploy NPM, NTA & VoIP & NQM (for IP SLA) on our VMWare infrastructure. We're currently having discussions around resiliency, and I have a question.
Can we use VMWare HA for1 polling engine as opposed to rolling out 2 pollers with FOE? I'm not sure if using VMWare HA would mess with the SQL database on failure and restart of the services on the new VM, or whether the 'heartbeat' facility in VMWare HA is sufficient to detect the polling services going down.
Any help or knowledge of the above would be extremely helpful!
