vSAN clustering has been disabled on an ESXi host (2058794)

  • 1 Ratings


When vSAN clustering is disabled on an ESXi host, the following error message displays:

VSAN clustering and directory services have been disabled thus will be no longer available.

This event might occur when you move the host out of the vSAN cluster.


The host is no longer a part of the vSAN cluster. Its storage disks cannot contribute to the vSAN datastore.


If the host is moved out of the vSAN cluster unintentionally or by an accident, move the host back to the cluster.
