vMotion and startup settings

Hello.

In my environment I saw that vMotion doesn't transfer the startup settings of an VM from one host to another host! I already read several threads but nowhere was written how this should be handled.... Are there any recommendations?

My environment: 3x ESXi 4.1 / Shared storage / Essentials Plus license

Thanks for some feedback.

Creating an HA cluster would rectify this.

yup, any vm on your ha hosts will use the startup setting you specify in your cluster.
