    Thread: VMware admins?

      How are you handling graceful shutdowns of the hosts connected to APC devices?


      How do the hosts get turned back on when power to the APC device is restored?

      Good question. In most of our environments we have somebody go on site to physically power the boxes back on (or have the "power user" in the office do it for us). Geography might make that a little impractical though.

      In your situation:

      Guests/VM's: PowerChute

      Hosts: VMWare KB link you posted, and then set the BIOS to "power on" after power loss and not "previous state" or "remain off". From the POV of the BIOS, even if the box was gracefully shut down, it can still tell that it lost power outside of its control (when the UPS runs out of juice), so the moment power is restored the BIOS will sense that and send a startup signal.
