we have Guest OS: Data ONTAP9.8P5, running as vm in VMware vCenter
I found KB for shutdown of physical one
none address Ontap select as specialized KB
Even support told me follow the physical one
so i came up with below, if anyone does this Please buddy check
### ssh to anyone of of the cluster nodes ( i have 2 of them )
system node autosupport invoke -node * -type all -message "MAINT=8h Power Maintenance"
system node halt -node * -skip-lif-migration-before-shutdown true -ignore-quorum-warnings true -inhibit-takeover true
Post this shutdown both vms from the vCenter console.
