You can power off multiple vApps simultaneously. This action powers off all the virtual machines in the vApps. To perform certain actions, such as adding a vApp to a catalog, copying it, or moving it to another virtual data center, first you must power off the vApp.


  • Verify that the vApps are started.
  • Verify that you are at least vApp author.


  1. On the Virtual Data Center dashboard screen, click the card of the virtual data center you want to explore, and from the left panel, select vApps.
  2. Toggle on the Multiselect option.
  3. Select the vApps that you want to power off.
  4. From the Actions menu, select Power Off.
  5. Click OK to confirm.
