poweroff virtual_machine


The poweroff virtual_machine command is used to power off a VM. If you shut down the VM normally, stop running software and processes in case of data loss. A forcible shutdown may damage the hardware and file system; therefore, exercise caution when performing this operation.


poweroff virtual_machine <vm_id> <force>





vm_id VM ID.

The value can be the VM ID or "all". When entering the VM ID, perform operations on the corresponding VM; when entering "all", perform operations on all VMs. Query information about all VMs by pressing "Ctrl+A".

force Power off forcibly or not.

Usage Guidelines

1.Batch command operations are mutually exclusive. When you shut down VM in a batch, another batch operation is not allowed.

2.Mutual exclusion between the batch command operations has a timeout duration. Node exceptions make the batch operation remaining in the running status. When the wait period exceeds the timeout duration, the mutual exclusion is unlocked. The timeout duration is 20 minutes.

3.Batch operations and non-batch operations are mutually independent. Therefore, when batch operation commands are performed, the non-batch operation commands can run normally.

4.The VM can be powered off forcibly only when the VM Agent service of the VM is started.
