An administrator enables High Availability (HA) on a Virtual SAN cluster.

I read somewhere that if vSAN is enabled on a cluster HA will use the VSAN IP address for its traffic. I'll try to find the correct link.

According to here it should be the Management VMKernel port group:

Management traffic | Carries the configuration and management communication for ESXi hosts, vCenter Server, and host-to-host High Availability traffic. By default, when you install the ESXi software, a vSphere Standard switch is created on the host together with a VMkernel adapter for management traffic. To provide redundancy, you can connect two or more physical NICs to a VMkernel adapter for management traffic.
