    Shut down VM's using UPS agent.

      Dear All,


      We have been trying to get backup agents working on our ESX 3.5 host's for a while now.


      Our goal is when a power outage occurs, the UPS informs the hosts to shut-down via an agent (We are using LanSafe), but also get the VM's running on that host (Windows) to be Shut Down cleanly first.


      Here is the snag, I have tested a shut down using the agents installed on the service console and it does shut down the host, however it doesn't shut down OS on the VM's.


      Any ideas?


      Also... attached is a copy of the messages log from when the server shuts down.
