Re: Shutdown the XP128

The really important information from the link above is:

"the power down of the disk array must be scheduled with a trained HP support representative.



CAUTION: Only trained HP representatives can shutdown and power-off a disk array. Shutting down and powering off a disk array is not a customer activity. A user should not attempt to power down the disk array at any time other than an emergency. "




Call HP, schedule the downtime.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Yes,

I know that. I am represent here for HP Support Eng and doing admin for RX servers, At that moment HP engineer who allocated to this XP128 will come or guide me to do that.

Anyway It will be easy if I have some document regarding shutdown XP128 ( not a emergency shutdown)

Thanks & Regards
