We have purchased APC and installed Powerchute on one of the running VMs on an ESXi 5 box. On the host we have 6 VMs, and would like to gracefully shutdown the VMs and the host correctly in the event of power failure.

We have the Powerchute Business Edition - how do we go about successfully gracefully shut the host down including the VMs?
