I am specifically interested in the situation where the VM and the Host come down because the UPS signals its running out of power.....after the power returns and the Host comes up, I would like the VM's to come up

If you specify it in the Options, VMs can start with the Host.

Automatic Start Options

Always Start the Virtual Machine Automatically.

I find it best to stagger them, so you do not overload the datastore.

e.g. 30 seconds, then 60 seconds etc

Look for the Automatic Start Action in the settings of the Virtual Machine:Capture.JPGProvides these actions:Capture.JPGBy default, I believe that it is set to Restart if previously running (Automatically start if it was running when the service stopped).  *The service in question is the Hyper-V service.*
