Tell us your idea, suggestion, or issue with Update Management!

Automatically start and stop virtual machines in conjunction with the Update Deployment Maintenance Window

Many of our customers use automation to stop VM's overnight and start them again the following morning. Obviously, Update Management cannot work against VM's which are stopped meaning we must manually suspend the start/stop automation when an Update Management deployment is scheduled.

Having the ability for Update Management to automatically start VM's at the beginning of the maintenance window and stop them again at the end would be brilliant.
