Virtual Storage Platform One File 34 and File 38 Hardware Reference

Part Number
Follow this procedure whenever a server is about to be powered down for shipment or storage, and will be left off for more than a day. If the system is being restarted or power-cycled, this procedure is not required.

Contact your Hitachi Vantara representative for special instructions if servers will be in storage for more than one year.

  1. From the VSP One File operating system console, enter the command: shutdown --powerdown
  2. Wait until the rear panel LEDs turn off.
    Note: The PSUs continue to run and the PSU LEDs stay on.
  3. Power down the server by removing the power cables from the PSU modules.
