We have our Nutanix 5 node cluster installed with VMware vSphere 7.0U3. RF=2 so I should be bale to withstand a 1 node failure. I would like to test the HA capability of VMware/Nutanix by taking a node offline abruptly and ensure everything works as expected before placing production workloads on it.
I was thinking of placing a test VM on a node and then pulling the power cables and ensuring that VM is powered up on a remaining host.
Does anyone have any better or preferred way to test HA?

Check the portal for X-ray. I thought there were automated tests like that. It will reboot the nodes via IPMI reboot for you.

I just used the IPMI interface to forcefully power off the node.
