A hard power off is an immediate drop of power to the node, VM node, or VMS. Database corruption on the nodes may occur. Use this command only when all other attempts to power off have failed.

Performing a hard power off on the VMS also powers off the associated VMs.

  1. From the Tree View, select the VMS, or one or more nodes or VM nodes that you want to hard power off.
  2. Select Functions > Hard Power Off. SMClient warns against a non-graceful shutdown.
  3. To continue, click Yes. If the component is a VMS, a message warns that the VMs on the VMS will also be powered off.
  4. To continue, click Yes.
