generally speaking, the procedure to halt/restart a storage,
MUST follow the principle:
While the storage Halts or Starts, nobody has to access it.

Storage have not power button or restart one, to avoid
errors: when you decide to poweroff,
detach Power (switching the two switches on the back)

Use a LIFO strategy.

Then, when you shutdown it, fisrt shutdown servers,switch, for last storage.
When you start storage, first powerup it, wait it ends its boot, then power switches, then servers.
