Cisco UCS start VMwares Automatically when down

Answered Question

Hello,


I have an incident that one of our customer's UCS server C200 M2 has been down due to power failure. Since the customer location is too far out of the city it takes us some while to get there to run all the Vmwares (CUCM Pub,CUCM Sub, CUC) to work again manually using vsphere client .


I was wondering is there any configuration need to be done that when the UCS is getting started it automatically start all the hosted vmwares ?


Thanks,

Hi


vSphere is the client application that you use to administer VMware hosts. This has settings for automatic machine start/shutdown in the 'configuration' tab and it is the only way that you will get the setting enabled.


This applies to UCS or any other platform that runs VMware.

Sure, configure automatic start/shut for all VMs in the vSphere client.
