A hypervisor has had some weird storage failure where a couple of devices have just vanished, but the VSAN stuff hasn't properly accommodated this fact, so it's just sitting there protesting.

If it considered the node totally failed, it would all be so much easier.

@sullybiker Ceph has the opposite problem: if a node sneezes it starts recovering data immediately unless you go out of your way to tell it not to.
