Shutdown MDS

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2008


I need to shut down several director switches. Is there any command that shuts down the MDS completely or the only way is just to stop the power supplies?



I have this problem too.

you can suspend the vsan(s). The interfaces will then go 'inactive' and not forward traffic.

Thank you for the answer, but I need to shutdown the MDS completely (there will be a total power outage/maintenance in this room).

I would assume that once the VSANs were suspended and traffic flow stopped you would simply unplug the switch. I am not sure there is a command that will shutdown the MDS and power it off. I would make sure you did a copy run start command prior to shutting down so that any recent changes to the config are saved.
