vmware autostart when systems starts

I have a end user who claims that a guest started after it was shut off , the guest was set to autostart m but i am thinking that this is when the esx server gets booted and there is not any other way for a guest to boot if it is shut off right ?  the guest cant just start by it self if the physical esx server is not rebooted right ? even if ha or drs is running right ? csc

You are right with your assumptions. The Guest OS will NOT reboot by itself. From your configuration it will shut down with the ESX server and Power up after 10 second the ESX is up and running.

Check the Events and Tasks and you should be able to see who started it?

The evidence will be in the Events and Tasks, you cannot delete them, unless you edit the SQL tables!
