Usage Guidelines

The effect of this command is not persistent. The initial VM state after boot is determined by the VM‘s enabled/disabled configuration state.

To stop a VM process, use the command stop vm vm_name [forceful | graceful].

The Extreme Insight feature requires the Solid State Storage Device SSD-120.


The following example starts the VM process "vm1":

# start vm vm1
