The Shutdown Database step does different things depending on the Teradata Database version installed on your system.

Teradata Database Version Description
12.0 and Earlier

The Shutdown Database step issues a tpareset to shut down the Teradata Database if applicable.

No user interaction is required.

12.5 and Later

When executing as part of the Move Vprocs operation on a system that has Teradata Database version 13.0 or later, the Shutdown Database step verifies that the PDE state on all TPA nodes is at RUN/READY. This is required when performing a Move AMP on Teradata Database version 13.0 and later. If you are not performing a Move AMP operation, the step issues a tpareset if necessary.

During a Move AMP operation on Teradata Database version 13.0 or later, you are prompted to bring PDE to a state of RUN/READY on all TPA nodes. PDE must be in the RUN/READY state following reconfig in order for the Move AMP processing to complete. If the state is not RUN/READY, an error is displayed and you must take whatever action is required to bring PDE to the RUN/READY state before continuing. Once PDE is at RUN/READY, the step proceeds and issues a tpareset to shutdown PDE with no further user interaction required.
