Hi ya all,

I am a Microsoft boy and I don't know anything about linux. we have a server at the corp office, and tomorrow we have a scheduled power outage from 6.:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
I need to shutdown this server brfore the power goes off and then something bad may happen to the data in it.

what command should I use to shut it down?

any help will be appreciated.
