shut down hyper-v cluster service

Posted on 2014-11-06

Two Server 2012r2 nodes connected to a SAN, running multiple VMs as a cluster.

I want to reboot the 2 nodes and the SAN (and the 10gb switch they connect to) and I don't want the VMs to try to move from one node to the other during the shutdown.

What is the best way to shut down the cluster service so that I can reboot everything?

Thanks.

if you are working on a single host, you can 'pause' it to allow maintanence without the cluster assuming there's been a failure.

As you're planning to shut everything down I recommend shutting down all VMs then selected 'shutdown cluster' from FCM.
You can then access the SAN hardware are shutdown/reboot it as required as there will be no disk activity and the CSVs will be offline.

once the SAN is sorted, reboot the hosts and the cluster should come back up on its own.
