My esteemed colleague Mr vinf.net has published a rather good informative posting on how to enable the VMware vSphere Fault Tolerance (FT) feature on a nested instance of vSphere ESX 4.0. As mentioned in the title of this posting he does this in a lab using ML115 G5 Quad Core’s – what’s there not to like. :) The AMD Quad Core Opteron 1352 Quad Core CPU found in the ML115 G5 is compatible with the FT feature making it a great little server for a home or work lab. Check out my article here that outlines which of the Proliant ML110/ML115’s have the required CPU for FT.
