Stopping a vApp powers off or shuts down all the virtual machines in the vApp. You must stop a vApp before you can perform certain actions. For example, adding it to a catalog, copying it, moving it, and so on.

You can specify whether stopping a vApp powers off or shuts down its virtual machines in the vApp properties page.


The vApp must be started.


  1. Click My Cloud.
  2. In the left pane, click vApps.
  3. Select a vApp, right-click, and select Stop.
  4. Click OK.
