Hi,

I have a Nexenta ZFS on vmware ESXi 5.5. I installed vmware tools with this guide:

When I do a setup appliance poweroff it reboots instead of powering down the vm.

Please advise.

I'm not certain that VMware Tools from Solaris is supported on Nexenta.

I would recommend shutting down and restarting from the Web GUI supplied.
