If they are not compatible, they remain on the rebooted host. If there are powered-on virtual machines that cannot be reregistered, the operation waits until they are powered off manually.

    SwitchParameter named Indicates that you want to restart the hosts even if they are not in a maintenance mode.
    optional
    RunAsync
    SwitchParameter named Indicates that the command returns immediately without waiting for the task to complete. In this mode, the output of the cmdlet is a Task object. For more information about the RunAsync parameter run "help About_RunAsync" in the VMware PowerCLI console.
