Hi everybody

I have a SAN NetApp FSA2240 in a High Availability Cluster Active-Active. I need to shutdown properly my SAN to avoid problems because in a few days we are going to make maintenance, I have look for information or steps to correctly shutdown this SAN, but I can not find detailed information.

Last year we shutdown the SAN powering off the power supplies, but when the SAN was powered on, there was an alert and we had to run some commands in ssh.

Thank you.

I would also issue a cf disable first, then halt if applicable

assuming 7 mode, before you type any commands, to disable take over, otherwise if you have two controllers in HA, the other will take over automatically.

and then log into each controller, via service processor if enabled.

shutdown all the applications first, hosts, etc..
Shutdown the controller using the halt command, you may need to do -f to force it.  Best yet do this via SP (storage processor so you can see what's going on).  Then shutdown the shelves.  To bring it back up do this in reverse order

Thank you for your answers.

Then I have to run

cf disable
halt -f

So I have to run this commans in ssh connection to both controllers?

And to start up I only need to run

cf enable

Right?

that's correct.  Boot up controllers one at a time to prevent split brain scenario if possible
