Powering Off and Starting Up AFS – Native File Services on Nutanix

There really isn’t a need to shut down AFS but moves and maintenance are a part of life. Here are the steps for a clean shutdown….

-DL

Shutting Down:
• Power off all guest VMs on the cluster, leaving only FSVM’s and CVM’s powered on.
• From any CVM run: minerva -a stop
• The stop command will stop AFS services and power off the FSVMs for all File Servers
• Once only the CVM’s remain powered on, run Cluster Stop from any CVM.
• Power Off the CVM’s and Hosts

Starting Up:
• Power on Hosts
• CVMs will auto-start once the Host is up
• Once all CVMs are up, run Cluster Start to initiate cluster services
• Verify all services are up with Cluster Status
• From any CVM run: minerva -a start
• The start command will power on the FSVMs for all File Servers and start AFS services
• Power on all remaining guest VMs
