Windows guest shutdown at restart of host

When running openSUSE 12.3 I could restart the host and it would nicely shutdown the windows guest that I’ve configured. Since moving to openSUSE 13.2 (both upgrade and new install), any Windows guest is not shutdown nicely.

Is there something I’m missing or is there a configuration option that I should explore?


Since you are talking about guest then i assume you are using a virtualization software.
Now the question is which virtualization are you talking about? :wink:

Sorry, KVM. I haven’t tested XEN to see if the same symptoms exist there yet.

I cannot remember when any virtualization supported automatically doing an orderly Guest shutdown.
If it’s desired, I usually script the Guest shutdowns, but in general I’ve always manually shutdown Guests.
