    The three ways to power off an NSM4000 appliance are:

    Powering Off Using the Management Console

    You can power off the NSM4000 appliance from the NSM CLI by using the management console.

    Before you begin:

    • Connect the NSM4000 appliance to a management console. Refer to Connecting an NSM4000 Appliance to a Management Console for more information.
    • Configure a console terminal or terminal emulation utility to use the following serial connection parameters:
      • Baud rate: 9600 bits per second
      • Data: 8 bits
      • Flow control: None
      • Parity: None
      • Stop bits: 1
    • Ensure that the appliance is booted and the console displays the login prompt.

    To power off the appliance using the management console:

    1. At the console login prompt, enter the sudo su- command to log in to the appliance as the root user.
    2. Enter the admin password.
    3. Enter the following commands to perform the specified tasks:
      • Enter the reboot command to reboot the NSM4000 appliance.
      • Enter the shutdown -h now command to shut down the NSM4000 appliance.

    The appliance displays output messages on the management console and then powers off. When the appliance is powered off, the green Power LED on the front panel of the appliance goes out; in addition, the Power Supply Module LED turns amber.
