I have old vcenter 5.5 env and noticed power off issues for some VMs – when I try to power off VM it just starts back again after 10 seconds – Power on virtual machine Initiated by Administrator. Is it some bug ? I have solved last time the same issue changing Power Management option to “Suspend the virtual machine” + power off VM and fast Remove from Inventory + add back to Inventory from VMs vmx. Right now I have VM where it does not work. VM is in HA cluster so “Virtual Machine Startup and Shutdown” is disabled for ESXi. Tried:
- Re-enable HA + DRS
- Disable “enable individual virtual machine automation levels
- Disable all from RUN Vmware Tools scripts tab in VM settings
nothing helps – any ideas ?
