Power off storage resources for a NetApp HCI system

Contributors netapp-mwallis Download PDF of this page

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

Steps

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 you are connected to the correct MVIP.

  2. Verify that the iSCSI session count is zero.

  3. Navigate to Cluster > Nodes > Active, and record the node IDs for all of the active nodes in the cluster.

  4. 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 address of the NetApp HCI storage system and the nodes=[] array includes the node IDs that you recorded in step 2. For example:

    https://{MVIP}/json-rpc/1.0?method=Shutdown&nodes=[1,2,3,4]&option=halt
  5. Enter the cluster administrator user name and password.

  6. Validate that the API call returned successfully by verifying that all storage cluster nodes are included in the successful section of the API result.

    You have successfully powered off all the NetApp HCI storage nodes.
