  • Automatically Power Up VMware Server Guest Operating Systems when ESXi boot up

    Help....

    I read the "Automatically Power Up VMware Server Guest Operating Systems" doc by David Davis , however I notice that my ESXi 4 doesn't provide the "startup/shutdown" in the option tab inside the VM setting.

    how do I do this with ESXi 4 ?

    thanks.

    I'm currently at work and dont have access to my home vSphere console but if I recall correctly it is the configuration tab of the esx server. There should be a menu item on the right hand side that says something like Virtual Machines Startup / Shutdown. From here you can configure which servers you want to automatically start up and how long the delay will be between each server etc.

    Hope this helps
