HA Enabled HVM Guest Will Automatically Restart Unless Shutdown Using Oracle VM Manager (Doc ID 1276786.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 28, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 2.1 to 3.4.3 [Release OVM21 to OVM34]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After manually shutting down a fully-virtualized (HVM) domU guest using a command similar to:

# xm shutdown <domain>


in a high-availability (HA) server pool with the default on_poweroff setting in vm.cfg, the domU guest will be restarted automatically.  Other guest types, such as para-virtualized (PVM) or para/hardware-virtualized, do not exhibit this behavior: they do not restart automatically.
