Shutting down the system with Netezza Performance Server

Learn how to power off IBM® Cloud Pak for Data System with Netezza Performance Server running on it.


  1. Log in to the control plane node and verify the state of the system:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ap state -d
    System state is 'Ready'
    Application state is 'Ready'
    Platform management state is 'Active'
  2. Run ap node and make a note of nodes on system.
    ap node
  3. Shut down Netezza Performance Server by running the following commands:
    1. docker exec -it ipshost1 bash
    2. su - nz
    3. rm /nz/.gpfstoken
    4. nzstop
    5. exit to come out of nz.
    6. exit to come out of docker.
  4. Stop the system and services running the commands from e1n1:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ap apps disable VDB --force
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ap apps

    Wait and verify that VDB gets to the DISABLED state:

    [root@e1n1 ~]# apstop
    System in 'Stopped' state
    [root@e1n1 ~]# apstop --service
    Successfully deactivated system
    Stopping Magneto service on all nodes
    Note: Ignore the message: Problem occurred: Some service stopping steps failed on nodes fbond.
  5. Shut down GPFS file system from first control node. From e1n1 run:
    [root@e1n1 ~]#systemctl stop nfs
    [root@e1n1 ~]#mmumount all -a
    [root@e1n1 ~]#mmshutdown -a
  6. Verify GPFS file systems are unmounted:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# mmlsmount all -L
    Example output:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# mmlsmount all -Lmmcommon: mmremote command cannot be executed. Either none of the
    nodes in the cluster are reachable, or GPFS is down on all of the
    nodes. mmlsmount: Command failed. Examine previous error messages to
    determine cause.
  7. Shut down docker on all the control nodes:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# for node in $(/opt/ibm/appliance/platform/xcat/scripts/xcat/ --control); do ssh $node "service docker stop";done
    [root@e1n1 ~]# for node in $(/opt/ibm/appliance/platform/xcat/scripts/xcat/ --control); do ssh $node "service docker stop";done
    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl stop docker.service
    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl stop docker.service
    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl stop docker.service
  8. Shut down nodes from e1n1, in the following order:
    1. Power off all SPU (NPS) nodes (enclosures 3 and 4 in the example)
    2. Shut down the ICPD nodes (enclosures 1 and 2 in the example)
    3. Power off the ICPD nodes
    [root@e1n1 ~]# for ip in e{3..4}n{1..4}bmc; do ipmitool -I lanplus -H $ip -U USERID -P PASSW0RD power off; done
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e2n4 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e2n3 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e2n2 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e2n1 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e1n4 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e1n3 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ssh e1n2 'shutdown -h'
    [root@e1n1 ~]# shutdown -h
  9. Verify that all nodes are powered off. Wait 5 - 10 minutes.

    Check that the power LEDs are blinking on all the nodes.

  10. Physically remove power from the D2 enclosures, the fabric switch, and management switch.
