HOW TO: Shutdown the Storage

The second post in the AdminSeries is going to be about how to Shutdown the Storage. Before you read this post, or are trying to do this, go back and make sure you have Shutdown the Database(s) first.

So, assuming that you have already Shutdown the Database(s), head over to the EXAStorage tab in EXAOperation (a lot of EXA’s going on there guys!).

It should look a little something like this:

storageon

I’ve got two databases, with three nodes each and a licence node. This means I have 6 volumes listed up top, and 7 disks from my nodes at the bottom. You may have more or less depending on your setup.

Click Shutdown Storage Service.

The page should then look like this:

exastorageoff

Here you can see the 7 nodes – 6 data nodes and 1 licence server.

Seeing the EXAStorage page look like this, means that the Storage is now stopped.

Having Shutdown the Database(s) and the Storage, we’ll move onto how to Shutdown the Nodes.
