Re: Want to shutdown the switches



Regarding the ICX switches, you can shut them down by unplugging the power cable. You just need to make sure the configuration is saved.


The VDX can be shutdown more gracefully following the steps below:


vdx01#unhide foscmd


vdx01# foscmd poweroff


Hope this helps addressing your concern.
