Shutting down nodes

You can shutdown a node or storage system from HPE SSMC. Monitor the task progress in the Activity screen.

  1. On the main menu, select Storage Systems > Systems.
  2. On the list pane, select the storage system, and then click Shutdown in the Actions menu.

    The Shutdown Controller Node dialog opens.

    You can hover over fields to display tooltips.

  3. In the Shutdown dialog, select your choice for the required setting.

    Select a single node to shutdown the specific node. Select all nodes to shutdown the storage system.

    Shutting down a node can cause:
    • Performance degradation of the storage system.

    • Outage if the host connectivity is not correctly configured.

  4. When you have completed your choices, click Shutdown to start the action and close the dialog, or click Cancel if you are not sure about the action.
