Shutting Down the IPM Virtual Edition VM

Should you need to shut down the IPM Virtual Edition virtual machine (VM), use the appropriate method below.

  • For vCenter, from the vCenter UI Virtual Machine screen, select Actions > Power > Shut Down Guest OS. Once the guest OS is cleanly shutdown, you may power off the VM.

  • For Hyper-V, in the Virtual Machines table, right-click on the VM and select the Shutdown... option. This will gracefully shutdown the guest OS and then the VM.


Avoid powering off a VM directly without first shutting down the guest OS . Data corruption might result and require repair.
