Powering Down a vSRX VM with Hyper-V

 

In situations where you need to modify the vSRX VM settings from Hyper-V, you must first perform a graceful shut down of the vSRX VM using the Shut Down command. The vSRX VM performs an orderly closing of all programs and attempts to shut off power to avoid data loss.

Note

If you are using Microsoft PowerShell, use the Stop-VM command to perform a graceful shutdown of the vSRX VM.

To gracefully shut down the vSRX instance on the Hyper-V host computer:

  1. Log onto your Hyper-V host computer using the Administrator account.
  2. Open the Hyper-V Manager by selecting Start > Administrative Tools > Hyper-V Manager.
  3. Power down the vSRX instance in the Hyper-V Manager by selecting the vSRX VM from the list of virtual machines, and then ight-click and select Shut Down from the context menu (or select Action > Shut Down).
  4. Power on the vSRX instance in the Hyper-V Manager by selecting the vSRX VM from the list of virtual machines, and then right-click and select Start from the context menu (or select Action > Start).Note

    If you are using Microsoft PowerShell, use the Start-VM command to start the vSRX VM.
