Power Down the Storage Server for Immediate Shutdown Using the Power Button


Caution  -  This procedure quickly forces the storage server main power off. You might corrupt your system data during an immediate power-down, so use this procedure to power down the storage server only after attempting the graceful power-down procedure.

  1. Press and hold the Power button for four seconds to force the main power off and to enter standby power mode.

    When main power is off, the Power/OK LED on the front panel begins flashing, indicating that the storage server is in standby power mode. See Storage Server System-Level Status Indicators.

  2. Disconnect the power cords and data cables from the storage server.

    See Disconnect Cables From the Storage Server.


    Caution  -  When you power down the storage server using the Power button, the storage server enters standby power mode. Power is still directed to the service processor remote management subsystem and power supply fans. To completely power off the storage server, you must disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
