VMWare Stop Virtual Machine

   

 

The Stop Virtual Machine action allows you to halt a running VMWare Virtual Machine.

 

Warning: The Stop Virtual Machine action does not shut down the Guest operating system automatically. It is recommended you use the Suspend Virtual Machine action wherever possible.

 

Note: Currently (VMWare Workstation 5.5) it is impossible to stop teams, due to a limitation in VMWare. It is also impossible to restart VMs which are part of a team and have already been stopped.
