v4+ Matrixstore Cluster
In the event of planned maintenance, it is simple to shut down the cluster In Matrixstore v4 and above.
Firstly ensure any Matrixstore Hubs running are powered down safely.
Then using a Web Browser go to your Web Administration for the cluster, located on a node's IP address on port 8443, eg https://10.10.10.10:8443, and log in using your cluster admin credentials.
Once logged in, navigate to the nodes tab, select the node(s) to power off, go to the top right Actions menu, and select Power off. This will initiate a clean shutdown of the cluster ensuring all services are stopped and the operating system is shut down properly.
To confirm the shutdown has been completed physically check the nodes and see the LED light on the rear PDU turn from Green to Orange.
To power on the cluster back on again after maintenance, begin by physically pressing the power button on the front of all nodes.
After a period of 10-15mins, you should be able to log back into your Web Administration page for the cluster using your cluster admin credentials.
The cluster is online again once all the nodes are online and have a recent uptime
Once the cluster is online again please proceed to power on any hubs which were shut down.
