maybe you are right. I could not determine if NAS shutdown let enough time to VM to shutdown properly. To be sure, I use scheduler from VM OS to shutdown VM gracefully, and after that, use scheduler from NAS to reboot : after reboot, VM is brought up again.
First thank you sksbir, can you describe where and how you setup this...will be great...
- my VM is under linux. I use crontab for schedule a shutdown ( without reboot ) , eg at 2.00 in the morning.
- with crontab from NAS, I schedule a reboot at 2.10
For more security, from NAS, you can schedule a script which will check if VM is really stopped, and reboot NAS only if ok, instead of directly schedule shutdown command.
