In the system administration you can add all virtual and physical systems of your network, which you want to be controlled by OPMONis. At the moment OPMONis can handle Windows, Linux, ESXi (Hosts and virtual machines), free ESXi, XenServer and Hyper-V.
The added systems will be shut down in the same order as they are displayed. The standard behavior of OPMONis is to monitor the status of the systems and to trigger the next systems shutdown not before the actual system has finished their action (shutdown). Only after that the next shutdown is triggered. Selecting the checkbox “Await Execution” will allow you to change this behavior.
If it is not possible for any reason to shut down a system (e.g. an execution error or just the system not reacting to the shutdown command), automatically the next system will be triggered.
Following chapter will explain every system type with their specifics. You can find technical details in the last chapter “Technique”.
