Shut Down a Cluster Member

You can use the Shutdown member command in Firebox System Manager to shut down a member of a cluster. This is equivalent to the File > Shutdown command that you use to shut down a non-clustered device.

  1. Select Tools > Cluster > Shutdown member.
    The Shutdown member dialog box appears.

  1. Select the cluster member you want to shut down.
  2. Type the configuration passphrase.
  3. Click OK.
    The cluster member shuts down. Any traffic handled by that cluster member shifts to the other cluster member.

When you shut down a cluster member, the LCD, the serial port, and all interfaces of the device are shut down. The power indicator changes to orange, and the fans continue to run, but you cannot communicate with the device. To restart the device after a shut down, you must press the power button to power off the device. Then press the power button again to power on the device and restart it.
