  • 1.  Prevent host power on when vCenter restarts?

    Posted Oct 23, 2020 11:00 AM

    Hi,

    is there a setting that during a reboot of the VCSA or restarting the vpxd service the hosts which are in standby will be kept in standby?

    Currently they will always be powered on...

    Kind regards

    Stefan

    No there is not. Are you using DPM?

    No, this is my homelab and i set the 2nd host the most time to standby to save power...

    And when i now doing some tests and rebooting the VCSA the host will be powered up every time. Will be nice if there is way to prevent this. But if there is nothing, then i must live with that...

    But one way there is. I can remove the IPMI config from the host, then the power on task fails and the host keeps in standby. But then i must go to the IPMI web page to power on this host...

    Okay, understood. Had a customer not too long ago with a similar problem, but then it was DPM.
