    [SOLVED] How to promptly kill a VM that will never be able to shutdown?

    Hi all, So I'm running a Cisco virtual appliance in a proxmox VM - and these things are not designed to shut down at all. There's no command to tell it to shutdown, nor is there any way to install an agent or have it use acpi etc. As such, telling a node to reboot will always hang on this VM...
