    shutdownVM hard powers down vms with old tools

      The shutdownVM sub only gracefully shuts down VMs if toolsStatus is toolsOk, otherwise it issues a hard power off.

       

      This is less than ideal - out of date tools still respond to power commands pretty reliably.  It's likely that someone will have slightly outdated tools; this shouldn't result in hard shutdowns of those VMs.

       

      I've edited my script to include || $vm_view->summary->guest->toolsStatus->val eq 'toolsOld') in the condition on line 732.
