    if virtual server, then Yes

      I know that on Server 2005 it is possible.

      I meant Virtual PC2007.
      You say: NO I don't thinks so.
      Does it mean you are not sure?
      I would like to hear a positive answer

      I have a question about Virtual server.
      Is it possible to start Virtual machines automatically after HOST machine reboots?

      Thx.
      Michael.

        Indeed, from the same reason it doesn't work on VirtualPC. VirtualServer 2005 runs as a service, so if you run a virtual machine from the console, it will stay STARTED when you log off.

        Not from me. Sorry. It doesn't work in VirtualPC, because it runs as an application. It is binded to the user that is logged on. When the user logs off, all his/her applications are terminated, VPC among them.

        Here's your positive answer (I know is a little comfort, but ...) .
        From the Administrative Site, go to Virtual Machines -> Configure -> [your machine name] -> General Properties and change the value of Action when Virtual Server starts value.

              Just being in the right place at the right time (still asking myself if also being the right person )...
