I have a couple of simple questions regarding the shut down procedure for a checkpoint cluster. I have a 2 node Cluster running in HA new mode (not legacy) in active/standby non bridge mode.


1.    If I need to move the hardware or rerack, etc, and need to completely power off the gateways/cluster. What is the proper process to gracefully shutdown all nodes in a cluster?


2. If I am moving the internal interfaces to a new core switch on both checkpoint gateways in the cluster and thereby need to physically disconnect all interfaces on both gateways at the same time, what is the proper way to do this without causing an unwanted failover?  Should I completely power off the gateways or just shutdown the cluster software via some method? Something else?  How would I do this?
