Powering down servers

Before you power down a server, stop services on all grid nodes hosted by that server.

Steps

  1. From the service laptop, log in to the grid node:
    1. Enter the following command: ssh admin@grid_node_IP
    2. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    3. Enter the following command to switch to root: su -
    4. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    When you are logged in as root, the prompt changes from $ to #.
  2. Stop services:/etc/init.d/servermanager stop
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each grid node hosted on the server to be shut down.
  4. Shutdown the server: shutdown -h now
  5. Log out of the command shell: exit
