Performing Guest State Management in VMware

  • Last updated on

The Guest Overview dashboard includes links to change the state of the virtual machine, which is useful when preparing to take a snapshot, or when performing remedial work. For example, you can suspend or power off a guest machine while you change its configuration, and restart the machine for changes to take effect.

  1. In Service Center, click Status > Service Modules.
  2. Click the VMware link.
  3. In the Multi-Site Summary table, click a site name.
  4. Scroll down to the Hosts Summary table.
  5. Click a host machine name.
  6. Scroll down to the Guest Summary table.
  7. Click a guest machine name.
  8. In the Guest State Management area, click one of the following links:
    • Power On
    • Suspend
    • Reset
    • Power Off
    • Shut Down
    • Restart

Note: The shut down option is recommended for hardware maintenance only. After you shut down a guest, you cannot power it back on from the VMware ESXi service module.
