Powering off a vApp powers off all the virtual machines in the vApp. To perform certain actions, such as adding a vApp to a catalog, copying it, or moving it to another VDC, first you must power off the vApp.


The vApp must be started.


  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. Click Card Icon to view the vApps in a card view.
  3. From the Actions menu of the vApp you want to stop, select Power Off.
  4. Click OK.


All virtual machines in the vApp and the vApp itself are powered off.
