Just had the cluster installed. I'm going to patch my 5.5 installs, I put the first node into maintance mode and its just waiting for the CVM to power off or move. Should the CVM shutdown on its own or do I need to power it off before I patch and reboot?

Hello , as explained in this post http://next.nutanix.com/t5/Product-Ideas/CVM-as-Agent-VM/m-p/199
you have to properly shutdown the CVM manually to perform maintenance mode on a node.
As I'm running my resources on Hyper-V cluster, I take advantage of your post to ask if there's a way to tell SCVMM to not put CVM into saved states during maintenance mode but instead to shutdown/power off it ?
