MD3200 Shutdown Procedure

Hello

Is there any specific procedure for shutting down a MD3200 or do you just power down your hosts and pull the power on the MD?

Thanks

Kind Regards

RE: MD3200 Shutdown Procedure

Hello,

This forum is specific to Dell PS Series Storage (Equallogic)  

 However, with all SAN storage, you want to first shutdown the servers, then shutdown the storage

 I would check in the GUI, for a shutdown option.  That's preferred to just powering off the SAN.  If you are going to do that.  Wait 5 minutes after shutting down all the hosts before pulling power.  This should insure that all data in cache is written to the RAID.

Regards,

Don
