You might need to perform maintenance procedures on the SG6000 appliance. The procedures in this section assume that the appliance has already been deployed as a Storage Node in a StorageGRID system.

To prevent service interruptions, confirm that all other Storage Nodes are connected to the grid before shutting down the appliance or shut down the appliance during a scheduled maintenance window when periods of service disruption are acceptable. See the information about monitoring node connection states.

Important If you have ever used an ILM rule that creates only one copy of an object, you must shut down the appliance during a scheduled maintenance window. Otherwise, you might temporarily lose access to those objects during any maintenance procedure that takes a storage node out of service. See the information about managing objects with information lifecycle management.
