Resetting a virtual machine clears state (memory, cache, and so on), but the virtual machine continue to run. Resetting a virtual machine is the equivalent of pushing the reset button on a physical machine. It initiates a hard reset of the operating system without changing the power state of the virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. From the Navigator, select Compute > Virtual Machines.
  2. Select the virtual machine you want to reset.
  3. From the Power menu, select Reset.

Results

The state clears for the virtual machine.
