http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2032901 - This video discusses and demonstrates creating a vSphere DRS and HA cluster using the vSphere Web Client.

A vSphere DRS cluster is a collection of ESX/ESXi hosts and associated virtual machines with shared resources and a shared management interface. Before you can obtain the benefits of cluster-level resource management, you must create a cluster and enable DRS. For more information, see the Creating a DRS cluster and Using DRS Clusters to Manage Resources sections of the vSphere Resource Management Guide at http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vs...

vSphere HA clusters enable a collection of ESXi hosts to work together so that, as a group, they provide higher levels of availability for virtual machines than each ESXi host can provide individually. When you plan the creation and usage of a new vSphere HA cluster, the options you select affect the way that cluster responds to failures of hosts or virtual machines. For more information, see the Creating and Using vSphere HA Clusters section of the vSphere Resource Management Guide at http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vs...

Note: You can create a cluster without a special license. However, you need a license to enable a cluster for vSphere DRS (or vSphere HA).

Note: For best viewing results, ensure that the 720p HD setting is enabled and view in full screen mode.
