    VM Startup Delay Not Working Correctly...

    Dr Gary Enthusiast

      Greetings,

       

      I have 3 VM's setup on my ESXi server.  They have all been designated to start automatically with the server...in order.  The default startup delay is 120 seconds.

       

      VM 1 - Set to use the default....(Startup delay 120 seconds)

      VM 2 - Not to use the default....Startup delay - 600 seconds

      VM 3 - Not to use the default....Startup delay - 600 seconds

       

      VM 1 starts 2 minutes after the server starts...which is expected.  VM 2, however, starts 2 minutes after VM 1...not 10 minutes after VM 1.  VM 3 starts 10 minutes after VM 2.

       

      What is going on here...my understanding is that VM 1 should start 2 minutes after the ESXi server...VM 2 should start 10 minutes after VM 1...and VM 3 should start 10 minutes after VM 2...correct?
