Partially Powered Off in vCloud Director

What does Partially Powered Off mean and do you get charged when the VM is in this state?


When you shut down the guest OS from within a VM you may see a Partially Powered Off message like below:



In the above sceenshot the command shutdown -h now was used on a CentOS 7 OS CLI.


The VM is actually completely powered off as far as vCenter is concerned so no charges will be applied if using the Pay-As-You-Go model
