Power on a vApp

Each virtual machine within the vApp is powered on according to the startup order configuration. When powering on a vApp within a DRS cluster in manual mode, no DRS recommendations are generated

for virtual machine placements. The power-on operation performs as if DRS is run in a semiautomatic or

automatic mode for the initial placements of the virtual machines. This does not affect vMotion

recommendations. Recommendations for individual powering on and powering off of virtual machines are

also generated for vApps that are running.
