Re: shutdown airwave

Hey, I believe they should be the same as the Linux/Unix commands:

 

-h will halt after shutdown and terminates all processes and shuts down the cpu.

 

-p is poweroff and is exactly like halt, but it also turns off the unit itself (lights and everything on a PC). It sends an ACPI command to the board, then to the PSU, to cut the power.

 

Is the AirWave running on CentOS?


ACMA, ACMP, ACSA

Re: shutdown airwave

Yes, airwave runs on cent os

 

My question would be if i wanted to shutdown the airwave which of the two i shoudl use?

 

I think i have tried both and both seems to do the same but well which one would be recommended?

 

Cheers

Re: shutdown airwave

Hi,

 

As mentioned both works same only differnece is -p poweroff the lights aswell.

If you want to complete remove the server from network and want to ship to different place then use poweroff, else halt is fine.

Re: shutdown airwave

Okay

Well i got a virtual server of airwave, and we are doing a maintenience to the physical server so we need to turn it off.

In thi case halt(shutdown -h now) is fine? or do i need to poweroff(shudown -p now)?

 

Cheers

Re: shutdown airwave

ACPI in the BIOS should already be enabled.  So halt and poweroff should be doing the same thing.  You could also call the shutdown from the AMPCLI: Advanced (8) -> Shutdown (6)

This uses /sbin/halt which results in complete power off.

Re: shutdown airwave

The AMPCLI cmd is introduced in 8.2.4.  If you're on an earlier version, both shutdown -h and shutdown -p should do the same thing.  ACPI has been around for a while, so the server should be performing the full shutdown at this point unless the hardware is 10yrs or older.
