The UC linux appliances have VMWare tools embedded, which supports the shutdown guest function via VMWare. In trying this a few times in the lab, I've noticed that if you use this, it causes VMWare to term the O/S rather than shutting down the applicaiton first and then terming the O/S.
My question is....is this dangerous to do? Will using this cause damage to the V/M? Can it cause service interruptions? Database corruption?
Even when looking on VMWare's web site, there is no indication that shutting down a VM through VMTools is a "feature" and even if it is, there is no indicated name for it. VMWare tools isn't even mentioned anywhere on that page.
It would be really nice if someone with ties back to the business unit (specifically around CUCM and UCxN) could weigh in on this.
I'm trying to find out if simply using VMWare tools to execute the Shutdown Guest System will damage anything when used with Cisco Linux appliances such as CUCM and UCxN. The document you linked doesn't address that.
