Power Operations for Individual Members of a Team

To perform power operations for a single virtual machine in a team

1. Select the virtual machine from the teams console.

2. Choose the appropriate command from the VM Power menu.

  • Power On — see Starting a Virtual Machine for a description. This command starts the active virtual machine, just as a power switch starts a physical PC.
  • Power Off — see Shutting Down a Virtual Machine for a description. This command turns off the active virtual machine, just as a power switch turns off a physical PC.
  • Caution: If a virtual machine is writing to disk when it receives a Power Off command, data may be corrupted. See Shutting Down a Virtual Machine for more information.

  • Suspend and Resume — see Suspending and Resuming Virtual Machines for a description.
  • Reset — see Resetting a Virtual Machine for a description. This command resets the active virtual machine, just as pressing the hardware reset button resets a physical PC.
  • Caution: If a virtual machine is writing to disk when it receives a reset command, data may be corrupted. See Resetting a Virtual Machine for more information.
