Shutting Down the Server

Hi,
I need to shutdown the HP/9000 L2000 Server, running HP-Unix 11.0.
Well so far I just used the following reboot command.
# shutdown -ry 0
But Now I should first shutdown the server, then power it off and after finishing the work (power related) bring up the server.

So Could any body let me know the steps here.

Thanks & Regards
Syed

command = 'shutdown -hy 0'

H = halt.

Re: Shutting Down the Server

hi,

the command has been changed to:

shutdown -h -y now or
shutdown -h -y 0

-h --> halt
-y --> yes, don't ask me
now/0 --> don't wait any longer

Allways stay on the bright side of life!

Re: Shutting Down the Server

Hi Peter/Ian
Thanks lot,

What I want to know is,

once I shutdown the server by giving the following command

# shutdown -hy 0

then can I poweroff/switch off the server?
After completing the job.
How should I restart the server?
Is it just switch on the server?

if I switch on the server, will it prompt me any questions or ...

Please ....

Thanks & Regards
Syed

Re: Shutting Down the Server

Hi Syed,

when executing the shutdown- command you have to wait for a message:

system is now ready to turn off power

or something like that. (Depends on hardware)When this message appears you can switch off power. After that, you simply switch power on again.

Allways stay on the bright side of life!

Re: Shutting Down the Server

Once the system has shutdown, it will try to 'come up' again into a state that it can be powered off with. When the message 'shutdown complete' (or words to that effect) appears on the console, the system will appear to start up again, and will provide a console message "OK to power off" or similar.

Once this point is reached, simply kill the power from the front switch. (The K series and older use a key - turn to tht left).

To power on, power up all the external devices (tapes, disks, etc) first, then the CPU last.
