7.9.6. Killing a Virtual Machine

To kill a virtual machine is equivalent to performing a power off of a virtual machine, similar to unplugging the power cable from a physical machine. This is not the recommended method of shutting down a virtual machine, but may be used if the shut down command fails to shut down the virtual machine.

To kill a virtual machine:

  1. Select the Home view, and select the virtual machine in the Server Pools folder.

  2. Right-click on the virtual machine and select Kill from the menu.
