Subject Re: [BUG] vSphere - VMs are force powered off by ACS
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2013 06:43:51 GMT
During MS restart as part of host connect, vm sync happens. This may be stopping VMs if there
is a mismatch in actual state and what is present in the database. Do you see anything useful
in the MS logs?
