When I reboot or shutdown my XenServers hosts the VMs are not moving automatically to the next available host until I manually start the VMs but when I change physical host to maintenance mode the VMs are moving automatically to the next available host.

Attached is the screen short,

Seems to work as it is supposed to.

And that's why maintenance mode was invented. Never shut down a host before invoking maintenance mode.

Thank  you Robocat,

Well, My question is if in case the physical server failed or powered off with power outage VMs should move automatically to the next available physical host, right?

Yes, if HA is enabled and a host fails, then the VMs will be restarted on a different host.

If you want to test this, you could pull the power cords from a host. Obviously only do this when this host has some unimportant guests running and not with production VMs.

Can you confirm that HA is configured on your hosts?  Are your hosts patched to the same level?
