For array management you need ACU (array configuration utility) and/or system management homepage.

Once you did a shutdown, you can power off (pull cable for MSA30) the array.

Hope this helps!

I have read for a while that i can use acu only on a hp hardware server. Is it true?

You can always manage the MSA1000/1500 via serial line and CLI.

Hope this helps!

i do not have a serial port on my ESX Host, so I thought to manage it via Lan/FC?
