Running Windows 2008R2 Hyper-V in 3 node cluster with CSV,

I wasnt to reboot a cluster node which has 5 running VMs but i don't want them to live migrate. I want them to just go down when the nde reboots.

How do i do this as they always live migrate to another node.

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I have been ill.

How would automatic stop actions prevent a virtual server failing over to another host though?

I think your answer is on Step 10 of this document: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732181(v=ws.10).aspx#BKMK_Unplanned. Unfortunately I don't have a test environment that big to test that.
