Method shutdownHost_Task(boolean force)

Shuts down a host. If the command is successful, then the host has been shut down. Thus, the client never receives an indicator of success in the returned task if connected directly to the host.

This command is not supported on all hosts. Check the host capability VcHostCapability.




Name Type Description
force boolean Flag to specify whether or not the host should be shut down regardless of whether it is in maintenance mode. If true, the host is shut down, even if there are virtual machines running or other operations in progress.
