Shutting Down the SDI

The SDI uses a journaling filesystem to store satellite data its hard drive. The operating system files are loaded from the CompactFlash and run from a ramdisk.

If you need to shut down the SDI you can simply remove power (unplug it). To do a formal shut down sequence (the recommended method), perform the following steps.

1. Log into the SDI using the procedure described in Accessing the SDI.

2. Shut down the workstation.

Type:  shutdown -h now

This will stop the operating system and all processes, but the hardware will remain on. It is now safe to remove the power cable.
