    VM Autostart broken for clusters?

    mmadsenl3h Lurker

      If a VM configured to autostart is migrated to a host where autostart is not enabled, that VM will no longer autostart!

       

      Is it really not possible to enable autostart for a cluster? Why would migrating an autostarting VM to another host not automatically enable autostart on that host?

      When looking at VM startup/shutdown table from vCenter, there seems to be no indication that autostart is disabled for the host. The VM will still appear to be configured for autostart, it isn't until you click the "edit" button that you can actually see that autostart is not enabled for that host.

       

       

      Am I missing something, doing it wrong?

      Is there a bug in here somewhere, or is this just by design?
