how to shutdown a CLARiiON diskarray

Hi,

I'm new on Clariion EMC stuff.
Sorry if it looks like a stupid question.
Next day our company should relocate a feew HP-UX servers + a Clariion diskarray, (CX series - I think).
My question is: how can I do a propper shoutdown of the diskarray?

All that I know is that after servers shutdown I have to wait a feew minutes untill the Clariion will write the cache to the disk.
But after?
Just to unpluged the power supply ?!

Thank you,
Marcel

Hi,

As I remember you should log on to one of the SPs (SP_A or SP_B) and issue shutdown command for both SPs.

Hi,

Solved!
Quite simple:
There are two switches SPS (StandBy Power Supply), at the base of the box (back side).
I have just cu switch them off and wai for about one minute, until was no activiti on harddisks.

Thanks,
Marcel
