Shutting down the storage block

Procedure to power off the ThinkAgile CP storage block.

Procedure performed by: Solution administrator

Execution: Web Portal only

You shut down a storage block (shutting down all storage controllers) directly in the Cloud Controller.

In the Hardware page, in the storage block Action menu Screen capture of the Actions menu icon, select Power off....

At that point, if there are VMs running and using disks exported by the storage block, the system requests that the VMs be shut down. This shutdown can be done in the dialog box.

For best results, VM owners should perform a proper shutdown within the VMs based on their application-specific shutdown procedures.
