1. Select VM's Host, click on Configuration Tab then click Properties (top right corner)
2. Virtual Machine Startup and Shutdown window will pop up, checkmark "Allow virtual machines to start."
3. Select the virtual machine in the list and click on "Move Up" till it reaches the "Automatic Startup" section.
4. Repeat the same procedure for any additional virtual machines.

Auto Start and Shutdown Virtual Machines

Just log into your ESX server using the vSphere GUI Client, click on the host, then click the Configuration tab. In the 'Software' box, click the Virtual Machine Startup/Shutdown link. In the upper right click Properties.
