during the very nice VCL Bootcamp you organized in Wroclaw we discussed
about the option to switch off computers without reservation.
First few words about our infrastructure. It consists of 2 VMWare ESXi
boxes with 256GB RAM each handling 60-100 VMs. We use iSCSI-based
storage for datastore and 2 VM stores. Since VMFS3 is clustered this
works quite well and bootstrap of machines takes less than a minute.
In this setup reload of machines takes longer than bootstrap and
therefore it would be better to switch off/remove the VM once the
reservation is done.
Are you planning add such feature in the next version?
