We are in the middle of having and not having Hitachi/Vion support and I need to know the safest way to shutdown/powerdown the AMS !000.
Thanks for any help.
If the AMS1000 is similar in design to our AMS2500 you should be able to press the power switch on the on the controller or base unit front panel and it will do a clean shutdown. Just press it once and it will start the shutdown process. Make sure you have suspended any IO from your HNAS or Hosts before you do this.
If you want shutdown with the SNM CLI:
aureboot -unit "NAME" -onlyshutdown
Only a shutdown is performed. A reboot is not performed.
From a power down perspective they are the same, just make you stop all host I/O first and wait a few minutes to sure the cache has destaged, that way if the batteries die won't be in as much trouble
