Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-8354) [VMware] restoreVirtualMachine should forcefully power off VM
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 06:29:53 GMT
Matty Courtney created CLOUDSTACK-8354:

             Summary: [VMware] restoreVirtualMachine should forcefully power off VM
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-8354
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: API, VMware
    Affects Versions: 4.4.2
            Reporter: Matty Courtney
            Priority: Minor

When restoreVirtualMachine API is called against a running instance CloudStack issues a command
to vCenter to shutdown the guest OS, which shuts the OS down gracefully.

Sometimes this graceful shutdown can take several minutes if there are processes that prevent/delay
the OS shutting down gracefully.

Presumably, when I call the restoreVirtualMachine API I don't care about the current state
of the instance and nor do I care if it shuts down gracefully.

Could the restoreVirtualMachine instead tell vCenter to Power Off the VM, which results in
the VM immediately changing to a stopped state?
