Ability to shutdown

The ability to shutdown/restart the ESXi VM or bare metal machine from the WebUI. Especially handy for a bare metal install.

VMware ESXi takes root password during the installation process. After that you can communicate with him over HTTP-based API, over SSH, over ESXCLI. But each method requires to know root password. Before shutting down ESXi node you should gracefully shutdown every VM on it.

So, as you can see, there are a very complex functional requirements for implementing this feature, and at the moment we have not even reached non-functional requirements :)

Hope somewhen developers will release it.

Why we need this? We can do it with ssh to server.
