Shutdown VMware ESXi 4.X, 5.X unlicensed server with PowerChute Network Shutdown

发布日期: 15 October 2020

Issue:
How to shutdown VMware ESXi host that is running the free edition of VMware with PowerChute Network Shutdown

Product Line:
PowerChute Network Shutdown v4.0, v4.1, v4.2

Environment:
VMWare ESXi free edition

Cause:
The VMware free edition of ESXi provides read-only access to the API functions. Without access to API functions, PowerChute cannot issue a command to shut down the ESXi host.

Solution:

The following Kbase article provides a sample script that com be used to shut down an unlicensed ESXi host. You can configure PowerChute Network Shutdown to execute this script using the shutdown command file feature.

Direction can be found at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-11623

PowerChute can issue shutdown commands for licensed ESXi hosts and does not require an external script.

NOTE: The document describing how to shut down an unlicensed ESXi server is provided by the VMware Community. Follow the steps at your own risk; Schneider Electric does not give support for these instructions.
