Hi,

I'm still evaluating VMWare so I'm new to this technology.

If I want to configure my virtual guest servers to auto restart as soon as the virtual host server is up and running after a reboot, how do I set this up?

Heaps of thanks.

Log into either your host or vCenter with vSphere Client. Click on the host on the left side the VMs are on; then on the right side -> Configuration tab -> Virtual Machine Startup/Shutdown. Go into Properties (or Edit...forget which) link, then click to 'Enable' it. On the bottom of the screen, move the VMs 'up' to auto start up area.
