    Hello,
     
    I have a few VMs on my SRE-900 (call manager and IPICS).  I would like to start the VMs automatically when the 3945 router is powered on.  I tried using the vsphere client, and set the VMs to start, but that didn't work.  What is the proper way?
     
    thanks,
    Mark Nguyen

    That's the proper way to start the VMs. If that's not working then we will file a bug.

    Thanks

    Mark,

    How long after you confoigured the VM to start automatically that you did a powercycle. The reason I ask this is VMware does not save each change in config but saves the config after a fixed interval.  Can you try adding the Vm to start automatically and then do one of the following



    1) Issue a graceful shutdown of the sre-v (either reload from console manager or reboot the host from Vsphere client) check f the VM¿s start automatically.  Then you can powercycle the router to check if the Vm still start automatically. A graceful shutdown should trigger esxi to save the config before shutdown so you should not see the issue.

    2) Power cycle the router after 2 hours ( I am trying to find the exact interval with which Vmware saves the config) and see if the VM¿s comes back up this time.



    Thanks

    Radhika
