RFS4000 Wing 5.4 - Shutdown procedure?

[ Edited ]

 

The install manual warns NOT to pull the PLUG on the RFS4000 (unless one runs the shutdown procedure)

(see attachment)

 

Looked and looked, I cannot find the shutdown procedure.

 

I can access the Web-Interface can someone please :

 

a) Point out how to do a Shutdown

 

b) Point me to the documentation on this topic, I looked and looked and couldn't find it

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

I am pretty sure that there is a shutdown option from within the controller GUI, should look something like below

This is from an RFS6000 but I am pretty sure that the RFS4000 should be pretty much the same

Dear Mick,

 

Sincerely appreciate the quick response, the web interface  on my RFS 4000 controller unit unfortunately looks much different and I have looked and looked and can't find it....  Very Frustrating...!

Hi,

 

You are correct I think that extract was from Win 4.x document.  I have looked through all the documentation that I have for these devices and cannot find anything shown in the GUI for Wing 5.4 to shut down these devices.

 

I did find halt command in the CLI reference guide

 

halt
Privileged Exec Mode Commands
Stops (halts) a device or a wireless controller. Once halted, the system must be restarted manually.
This command stops the device immediately. No indications or notifications are provided while the device shuts down.
Supported in the following platforms:
• Access Points — Brocade Mobility 300 Access Point, Brocade Mobility 650 Access Point, Brocade Mobility 6511 Access Point, Brocade Mobility 71XX Access Point
• Wireless Controllers — Brocade Mobility RFS4000, Brocade Mobility RFS6000, Brocade Mobility RFS7000
Syntax:
halt {on <DEVICE-NAME>}
Parameters
halt {on <DEVICE-NAME>}

halt                                                    Halts a device or a wireless controller
{on <DEVICE-NAME>}                  • on <DEVICE-NAME> – Optional. Enter the name of the AP or wireless controller.


Example
rfs7000-37FABE#halt on rfs7000-37FABE
rfs7000-37FABE#
