Steps to shutdown/startup NAS FAS2040

Hello Community,

I am looking for the procedure to shutdown and startup the Netapp FAS2040. We have a maintenance power outage. Hence will shutdown the whole FAS2040.

We have a 2 controllers setup in single path - HA connected to the disk enclosure.

The community says I have to first turn off the cluster first and then carry out the shutdown. but it does not say anything about power on step.

Can someone point me to right direction? Plz let me know if you require any other info.

Thanx.

Re: Steps to shutdown/startup NAS FAS2040

For Shutdown:

Sachin -

Shut down any client applications, unmount LUNs, etc ...

Log on to a mgt LIF on the second node.

Do

system node halt -node node1 -reason 'disaster coming' -inhibit-takeover true

Then

system node halt -node node2 -reason 'disaster coming'

Turn off controllers, disk shelves and switches.

Startup:

Turn on switches, then shelves, then controllers.

If autoboot isn't set then 'boot_ontap' from the sp or console.

See also 'System Administration Guide' portion of the documentation.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Re: Steps to shutdown/startup NAS FAS2040

Thanks Eugene.

Is it madatory to follow these steps?

I have found these steps , what do you think?

Power Down:-

"cf disable"

"cf status"

halt

Power down both nodes. (system power off)

Power Up :-

Power on Disk shelves.

Power on the heads (Controllers), one at a time from the rear end.

Connect to the BMC and check if the power status is on "system power status". If not then do "system power on"

then  'cf enable'

Please let me know if I am missing anything.

Sachin -

This would be on a 7-mode system.

'halt -f' will force the shutdown, so you wouldn't need to do the 'cf disable'.

See the man page for the halt command.

Re: Steps to shutdown/startup NAS FAS2040

And what do you mean by 7-mod system?

I wrote  halt and not halt -f  so we still need 'cf disable'

Thanks.

Re: Steps to shutdown/startup NAS FAS2040

Sachin -

Instead of the Cluster mode instructions I gave above.

I would usually use the 'halt -f' the procedure you listed with 'cf disable/enable'.

Either way will work.
