Scripting VM Start / Stop?

So, we can boot UnRaid in GUI mode and then boot into a VM on the same GPU.

However, when the VM quits, we don't get the unRaid GUI back (so we're 'stuck')


I'm wondering if there's a way to 'script' a sequence so that booting up a different VM could be achieved from within a VM?


Consider a single GPU server;

1. User boots to unRAID GUI

2. User launches Windows 10 VM from unRAID UI

3. Within Windows VM, users runs script to launch OSX VM (could be on desktop, could be part of unRaid browser UI)

4. Script shuts down Windows VM, waits a few seconds, then launches OSX VM

5. Voila, user sees OSX boot on same system/screen


Any thoughts, pointers?


(I guess I'm thinking about some kind of VM Switcher functionality)
