Best Practice to Shutdown the Checkpoint Appliances.

If someone has a VSX environment, where they have two 16200 gateway appliances and one M405 management appliance. If they want to rerack the device or shift the device they have to shut down the devices first. So what will be the best procedure to follow to shut down these three device?

Is it required to run the halt command from CLI before unplugging the power cable?

Requesting you to suggest to me the best practice for shutting down the CP device step by step including backup. Thanks in advance.

Thats best practise, absolutely...run halt from exprert, it will turn off the box, you can unplug power cable then.

Hello @the_rock 

Is it okay to power off the device through the "init 0" command?

That command unmounts any mounted files systems, so I would not do it, but it does work.
