Shutting Down the StorNext M440 System

Follow these steps to cleanly shut down and power off the StorNext M440 system:


 

1. Halt all I/O access to SAN and/or LAN clients.


 

2. For each SAN and/or LAN client, unmount and/or unshared the file systems. Refer to that client’s operating system administrator’s guide for instructions.


 

3. Open an ssh connection to the MDC node currently acting as the secondary node, and log in as the stornext user. 


 

4. To log in to the secondary server enter:

        • User: stornext

        • Password: enter the customer-supplied password (the default password is password)


 

5. Enter sudo rootsh.


 

6. Enter the password for the stornext user account a second time.


 

7. Enter /sbin/poweroff. Both the operating system and the StorNext software are gracefully shut down, and then the system powers off.


 

8. Open an ssh connection to the MDC node currently acting as the primary node, and log in as the stornext user.

         • User: stornext
