Subject Re: Unable to start system VMs after host restart
Date Thu, 17 May 2012 01:11:55 GMT
I had the same problem with my first install, and not sure how to fix it.

I found you need to put the host into maintenance mode before shutdown
or reboot.  If you do this, the system VMs will restart once the host
is enabled again.
