Shutting Down the VW Distributed Virtual Edition VM

Should you need to shut down VW, that is the three virtual machines (VM) from which the VW cluster was formed, there are two ways to do so.

  • In the VW UI Settings screen, click Shutdown Appliance.

  • In the vCenter UI Virtual Machine screen for the manager node, select Shut Down Guest OS from the Actions > Power menu.

Once the manager node is shutdown, you may safely shut down the guest OSes on the two worker nodes.

Caution

Avoid using the Power > Power off menu item unless absolutely necessary. Data corruption might result and require repair.
