EVA and Surestore FC60 array power down

EVA and Surestore FC60 array power down

Interested to get the group's opinion on procedure/sequence for shutting down these array systems.

Just don't want to cause rebuilds or other crazy things when powering these things down.

In general, here's how I would do it:

1) power down accessing machines ( unix )
2) power down each controller
3) power down each drive unit

Power up would be reverse of above.

Will I have any issues using the above procedure against an EVA 5000 and an FC60?

Re: EVA and Surestore FC60 array power down

Don't know about an FC60 but for the EVA you:

- Shutdown your Unix OS
- Power down servers
- Shutdown controllers (issued from Command View EVA)
- Power down controllers
- Power down disk shelves

go from servers, SMA, controllers then disk enclosures.

Re: EVA and Surestore FC60 array power down

It's the same for the FC60:

- stop the I/O
- power down the controllers (on the power supply - backside)
- wait some minutes
- switch of the JBODs

power on
- switch on the SC10
- wait some minutes (~5 to 10)
- power on the Controllers

Hope this helps!
