You can disable a host to prevent vApps from starting up on the host. Virtual machines that are already running on the host are not affected.

To perform maintenance on a host, migrate all vApps off of the host or stop all vApps and then disable the host.

1

Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Provider vDCs in the left pane.

2

Right-click the provider vDC name and select Open.

3

Click the Hosts tab.

4

Right-click the host name and select Enable Host or Disable Host.

vCloud Director enables or disables the host for all provider vDCs that use its resources.
