Right now I've got a cluster containing 3 VMWare ESXi 5.5 hosts, with HA activated. This works as intended: if one hosts fails then its VMs get started on one of the remaining hosts.
But it seems that for this to work 'start and stop virtual machines with the system' needs to be disabled? Is that correct?
Yet that seems to conflict with my APC PowerChute Network Shutdown software that requires that feature to be enabled so it can shutdown the VMs gracefully in case of an electricity outage and automatically start them again later?
Or what am I missing ... ?
Thanks a lot,
