6.6. Anti-Affinity Groups

6.6.1. Creating an Anti-Affinity Group
6.6.2. Editing an Anti-Affinity Group
6.6.3. Deleting an Anti-Affinity Group

Anti-affinity groups specify that specific virtual machines should never run on the same Oracle VM Server. An anti-affinity group applies to all the Oracle VM Servers in a server pool. You may want to set up anti-affinity groups when you want to build-in redundancy or load balancing of specific applications in your environment.

If you add a virtual machine to an anti-affinity group that already has a virtual machine in the group running on the same Oracle VM Server, the job is aborted and the virtual machine is not added to the group. To add the virtual machine to the anti-affinity group, migrate it to another Oracle VM Server, then add it to the group.
