    HA shutdown VM

    renied Lurker

      I am searching for a solutions to shutdown a vm when an other vm migrates to a specific host.



      I have two ESX Server.

      One running my productive vm, the other one for quality and testing.

      If the host running my productive fails, i need to start up the vm on my second host, but have to stop the quality and testing vm.

      How can i realize that???

            You can select the option for each VM when host is unavailable in the HA, like - restart on another host, or power of state.

            Select for production vm to restart on another host

            Select for quality and testing for power of state

              How it looks without failure:

              ESX1                    ESX2

              VM-P                    VM-Q


              How it should look when ESX1 fails:

              ESX1                    ESX2




              The Power State Configuration works if ESX2 would fail, but, tell me if i am wrong, when esx1 fails i would have VM-Q and VM-P running on ESX2?



              I have thought about a script to run on a HA Event to suspend VM-Q
