I am using PowerCLI to "PowerOff" VMs when there is a certain event detected. When this even happens, the only thing we can do is to power off the VM and power it on again.
Stop-VM -VM xxxx -Kill -Confirm:$false to power off the VM but I noticed that HA will restart the VM after the VM powered off.
But if I manually do "Power off" in vSphere GUI on this VM when HA is turned on, it stays "powered off"
Any idea why HA will start a VM which "powered off" by PowerCLI? or
Stop-VM is not the command for "Power Off"?
