Post [solved] VM to autostart after vSphere Hypervisor power on
Hello,

I have installed the free vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi 4.1 U1) as host and would like to know how to set the VM (Debian Squeeze 64-bits) to auto-start after ESXi power on.
Is this possible with the free vSphere Hypervisor? If yes, where do I find the setup for this?
Thanks for your help!

You must use vSphere Client
In vSphere Client go to:
Home
Select Inventory
Select ESXi Host
In right window go to Configuration tab
and click Virtual machine startup/shutdown in Software small window on left panel
Click Properties... (the right upper corner)

Note: The Auto Startup/Shutdown VM settings are ignored if your host is in Maintenance Mode.

If you want to make sure that your VMs will shut-down and then start-up with the host, you will need to make sure that any shut-down/start-ups of the host are done without it being in Maintenance Mode.
