vCenter Virtual Servers Power Options

To manage vCenter virtual server power options:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Server menu.
  2. Click the label of the required virtual server.
  3. Click the Tools button on the VS's screen to expand the VS Tools menu.
  4. The Tools menu enables you to perform the following power actions on VSs (the exact list shown depends on the VS status):
    • Reboot Virtual Server - powers off and then restarts the VS.
    • Suspend Virtual Server - stops a VS, changes its status to suspended and disables all the other actions on VS, unless unsuspended.

    • Shut Down Virtual Server – pops up a dialogue box, where you can either Shut Down VS (terminates the VS gracefully), or Power Off VS (terminates the VS forcefully).
    • Startup Virtual Server - queues a start-up action for a VS that's currently powered off.
