I noticed that the X-Ray tests do the power on hardware as one of the first steps. Can the power on steps be bypassed some how within the scenarios? My particular platform that I am using has the embedded VCenter (POC hardware), so X-Ray times out trying to connect to the VCenter when you have the entire cluster powered down. I don't believe I can link these hosts to an external VCenter right now, due to the VSAN and dVS configurations.
I'm kind of stuck with a chicken-and-egg scenario here.
