Hi Experts, I have a VmWare view environment consisting of Composer Servers with on board local SQL express database, 150 VMs, no persistent disks, Security servers, Connection servers, I need to be able to shut down this whole environment and power it back on. I believe there is a sequence which needs to be followed to do this. Can you advise?

TIA

1. Shutdown all VMs. (VDI Virtual Machines).

2. Horizon View Connection Server, Composer, Security Server.

3. vCenter Server.

Probably it is too late, but you can have DPM (aka host standby) and vcenter can power on ESXis... (you need to enter ILO/BMC parameters, then put host in standby and back up)
