   Run the following command:
        # hastop -local -force

   Verify that the cluster is stopped by running the ha command:
        # hasys -state

   Make sure that both had and hashadow processes are stopped. Also, stop the VCS CmdServer:
        # CmdServer -stop

4. Stop the cluster services in order:
    - For AMF:
    # systemctl stop amf
    - For VxFEN:
