Omconfig System Shutdown Or Omconfig Servermodule Shutdown

Use the omconfig system shutdown or omconfig servermodule shutdown command to determine how the system shuts down. During system shutdown, the default is to shut down the operating system before powering off the system. Shutting down the operating system first closes down the file system before powering the system down. If you do not want to shut down the operating system first, use the osfirst=false parameter.

  • NOTE: The parameter osfirst=false is not available on 13th generation and later systems. By default, on 13th generation and later systems, the operating system shuts down before turning off the server during a remote shutdown.

The following table displays the valid parameters for the command.

Table 1. Valid Parameters Of System Shutdown . The following table describes the command and its result.

action=poweroff Turns off the electrical power to the system.
action=powercycle Turns off the electrical power to the system, pauses, turns on the power, and reboots the system. Power cycling is useful when you want to reinitialize system components such as hard drives.

true: Closes the file system and exits the operating system before turning off the server.

false: Does not close the file system or shuts down the operating system before turning off the server.

  • NOTE: This command osfirst=false is not available on 13G and later systems. By default, on 13G and later systems, the operating system shuts down before turning off the server during a remote shutdown.
