Home Lab: HA and DRS at home on vSphere 5

Last but not least,
why do not cut the virtual power cord of the virtual vSphere 5 host and trigger the HA?
Let's try to do it: some Virtual machines are on host ESXi1 and some on host ESXi2. I will power off ESXi2 in the same way it would happen if the power goes away... go to ESXi2 virtual machine and issue the "Power off" command!
See what happens in the video below and look what an aggressive mode DRS does when I restart the "malfunctioned" host.
