It is. Set the shutdown policy to
migrateand it will happen for both reboot and shutdown. The section you quoted describes what's happening if the
conditionalis configured, could be structured or hinted a bit more explicit there.
Thomas, sorry, you are right!
In my testlab (configured for "migrate"), shutdown performed the migration as expected.
I just reviewed the lab environment for why it did not work on restart of a node.
Turns out I did some testing in between, cloned some VMs and forgot to add them to HA! So those did not get migrated later, but frozen instead.
Coming from VMware, some things require a bit more learning - in vCenter, you don't have to explicitly enable HA for each VM. It's the other way around, it lets you configure overrides to not perform actions when HA/DRS is globally enabled.
