VMware: Not using Fault-tolerance? Turn off FT to enable Cluster Compliance

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1017714


To disable Fault Tolerance compliance checks:
  1. Right-click the cluster and click Edit Settings > VMware HA > Advanced Options
  2. Enter das.includeFTcomplianceChecks in a blank field, and give it a value of false.

    When this setting is applied, Fault Tolerance Compliance Checks are removed from the description under theProfile Compliance Tab for the cluster and is no longer a role during a Cluster Compliance check.
Note: To re-enable the checks, remove the das.includeFTcomplianceChecks option.
