    We've just upgraded our VMware infrastructure from version 6.0 to 6.5, which involved replacing the Windows-based vcenter server with a virtual appliance (Linux-based). Now, if I go into Powerchute and go to the VM prioritisation list, the virtual appliance doesn't appear in the list of VMs. Is this expected?

    Thanks

    Yes. The vCenter Server VM will be powered down after all other VMs so it is not included in the priority list. Also, if PCNS is running on vMA or the PCNS Appliance has been installed that VM will also not be in the list and is powered down after vCenter Server VM and the host/s have been commanded down.

    Thanks. I wondered whether that might be the case, but I wasn't sure given that the previous Windows-based vcenter VM did appear in that list.
