shutdown brocade 5480

We are using Brocade 5480 sanswitches. We have tried gracefully shutdown these switches with sysshutdown but we are getting the message: This operation is not supported on this platform. Does anybody know which command to use? We are using FOS 7.2.1d

Re: shutdown brocade 5480

Hi @Anonymous,


I passed this question to some of our system engineers and this is there response.


"Confirmed that you cannot run a CLI command to shut down the switch module - you need to go into the CMM GUI and power off the unit from there. In case the CMM is the Maintenance Module of the chassis. "


Let us know if this helps.
