How to keep multiple VMs powered off until cold backup is finished

Hi,

XSIBackup-DC allows to replicate or backup VMs in cold state. Some of the VMs are related in a way to each other that, when one of VMs is powered off, a related VM also needs to remain powered off.

When using the standard procedure in XSIBackup-DC, I can only assure that each VM is powered off one after each other during its own backup. What is the suggested procedure for a VM A and a VM B that both need to be powered off if one or both of them need to be backed up / replicated in cold state?

Best regards,
Peter

You would need to script that, e.g.: turn off all VMs to backup, then turn them on when you are done.
