I got an environment of vCenter 7.0.3 Build 19234570 and ESXi 7 hosts(the cluster has DRS and HA enabled), and encountered a maintenance task on the entire data center: shutdown everything from VMs to ESXi hosts temporarily.
Note that this datacenter has no vSAN.
In order to make the vCLS VMs being shutdown correctly, should I disable the DRS & HA before shutdown vCLS? or maybe making ESXi into maintenance mode would be sufficient?
I just read this doc: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/com.vmware.vsphere.resmgmt.doc/GUID-96BD6016-4BE7-4B1C... but wondering about whether the retreat mode should be applied or not.
any hints please?🙄
can some one please give me the link to KB article on properly shutting down Vmware infrastructure( hosts, datastore,vcsa(virtual)). we are shutting down the SAN for power outage.
Thank you in Advance for the help
