What about the REST API to do a graceful shutdown of your VM’s and the vCenter appliance: https://code.vmware.com/web/sdk/6.7/vsphere-automation-rest

Thanks Bart. Unfortunately "The VIB module does not comply with the security recommendations imposed by VMWare. You lose VMWare support by installing this package." This pretty much rules out this option. :(

We need vCenter support, as well.

This shuts down the hosts directly (by-passing vCenter)


in spite of the title, it works for ESXi 6 and 7 as well

Is anyone using NUT to signal/control vCenter and vServer (6.x) for shutdown when batteries are getting low? Any recommendations?

We've found https://4sysops.com/archives/startup-and-shutdown-a-vmware-cluster-with-powercli-and-powershell/ but I'd prefer to do this from the master (which is running CentOS 8) and not pollute it by installing PS on it.
