Powering off storage resources for a NetApp HCI system

When you power off storage resources for NetApp HCI, you need to use the Shutdown Element API method to properly halt the storage nodes.

Procedure

After you power off the compute resources, you use a web browser to shut down all the nodes of the NetApp HCI storage cluster.

  1. Log in to the storage cluster and verify that the iSCI session count is zero. Also, verify that you are connected to the correct MVIP.
  2. Navigate to Cluster > Nodes > Active, and record the node IDs for all of the active nodes in the cluster.
  3. To power off the NetApp HCI storage cluster, open a web browser and use the following URL to invoke the power off and halt procedure, where MVIP is the management IP of the NetApp HCI storage system and nodes=[] includes the node IDs that you recorded in step 2.
    https://{MVIP}/json-rpc/1.0?method=Shutdown&nodes=[1,2,3,4]&option=halt
  4. Enter the cluster administrator user name and password.
  5. Validate that the API call returned successfully. Ensure that all cluster nodes are listed under the "successful" section of the API result.
    You have successfully powered off all the NetApp HCI components.
