How can I shutdown NetAppHCI

Hi,

 

We want to know how to shutdown NetAppHCI(compute node and storage node both.)

 

Could you tell me how to shutdown these system?

 

We want to know IPMI ip address.

We can not memorise IPMI ip address.

so we think need cold start then check IPMI IP address by TUI(key board and monitor).

 

Best Regards,

I could not find a how to shutdown.
So your response was very helpful.

HI SHINSASA,

 

you can shutdown all Storage Nodes by entering the following command in your browser:

 

https://<mvip>/json-rpc/1.0?method=Shutdown&nodes=[1,2,3,4]&option=halt

 

<mvip> = Your Cluster Management IP

[1,2,3,4] = The Nodes you want to shut down. If you have 5 or 6 Node you have to list them.

 

For Example if you want to shutdown all 6 Nodes:

https://192.168.1.150/json-rpc/1.0?method=Shutdown&nodes=[1,2,3,4,5,6]&option=halt

 

Kind regards

This is great.

 

I want to test this command.

Have fun and leave a Like for me in this thread Smiley Wink

 

By the way... to Shut down the Compute Nodes, do what you have done in history with normal ESX Hosts. Shut down vms, shut down ESX Hosts.

 

Kind regards

Re: How can I shutdown NetAppHCI

I used to use Postman to shutdown my lab cluster but recently came across this.

As for the compute nodes, that's standard vSphere:

You may get a chicken/egg scenario if your vCenter server is on your HCI storage however.

Hi CHRISMAKI,

 

Thank you for you reply.

I understood shutdown by GUI.
(You use postman. I did not know that plugin thx.)

 

Very easy and simple.

I think best asnwer.

 

But we want to clean shutdown. But vcetner running on ComputeNode of NetAppHCI.

 

So I think this is clean shudown...

 

1. Guest VM shutdown. (by vCenter web client )
2. Mnode(VM) shutdown. (by vCenter web client )

3.vCenter(VCSA) shutdown(by vCenter web client )

4.ESX shutdown(by vsphere web client )

      Mentenance mode and shutdown.

5. Storage Node(solidfire) shutdown.(by web browser)

 

https://<mvip>/json-rpc/1.0?method=Shutdown&nodes=[1,2,3,4]&option=halt
 <mvip> = Your Cluster Management IP

[1,2,3,4] = The Nodes you want to shut down. If you have 5 or 6 Node you have to list them.

if you have good idea tell me please.

 

Re: How can I shutdown NetAppHCI

That's fine, but you can't shutdown ESXi from vSphere when you shut down vCenter/VCSA in the previous step - ESXi could be shut down via PowerCLI or from each server's ESXi Web Management Interface.

 

Also for the storage cluster, a simpler way is to use PowerShell (and have the script ready, to shut down all ESXi, sleep for a minute, and then move on to shut down all storage nodes).  

 

Assuming storage node IDs are 1,2,3,4:

 

PS> Invoke-SFShutdown -Node 1,2,3,4 -Option Halt
