Re: shutdown and start up procedure for Netapp FAS6280

Joseph -

For Shutdown:

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.

I'll hope you didn't reboot just to try and fix LUN connectivity.

The only time I'd want to shut the cluster down would be if a disaster was about to hit.

LUN connectivity issues are often caused by errors in igroup or LUN mapping ...

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
