The virtual machines (or child vApps) will be stopped in the order specified in the vApp configuration, if force is false. If force is set to true, all virtual machines are powered-off (in no specific order and possibly in parallel) regardless of the vApp auto-start configuration.
While a vApp is stopping, all power operations performed on sub entities are disabled through the VIM API. They will throw TaskInProgress.
|force||boolean||If force is false, the shutdown order in the vApp is executed. If force is true, all virtual machines are powered-off (regardless of shutdown order).|
