Stops a virtual machine (VM) process.
|vm||Designates stopping a vm process.|
|vm_name||Specifies the VM name.|
|forceful||Forcefully terminates the VM.|
|graceful||Gracefully shutdowns the VM if possible (default).|
By default, the VM is shutdown gracefully, if possible.
The effect of this command is not persistent. The initial VM state after boot is determined by the VM‘s enabled/disabled configuration state. A VM is forcefully stopped if it does not shutdown gracefully within 60 seconds
To start a VM process, use the command start vm vm_name.
The Extreme Integrated Application Hosting (IAH) feature requires the Solid State Storage Device SSD-120.
The following example stops the VM process "vm1" forcefully:
# stop vm vm1 forcefully
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.3.
This command is available on all platforms that support the Extreme IAH feature and have a Core license installed. For a list of platforms that support the IAH feature and for information about licenses, see the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements .
