Stopping VCS

The hastop command stops HAD and related processes. You can customize the behavior of the hastop command by configuring the EngineShutdown attribute for the cluster.

See Controlling the hastop behavior using the EngineShutdown attribute.

The hastop command includes the following options:

hastop -all [-force]

hastop [-help]

hastop -local [-force | -evacuate | -noautodisable]

hastop -sys system ... [-force | -evacuate | -noautodisable]



Stops HAD on all systems in the cluster and takes all service groups offline. 


Displays command usage. 


Stops HAD on the system on which you typed the command 


Allows HAD to be stopped without taking service groups offline on the system. The value of the EngineShutdown attribute does not influence the behavior of the -force option.  


When combined with -local or -sys, migrates the system's active service groups to another system in the cluster, before the system is stopped.  


Ensures that service groups that can run on the node where the hastop command was issued are not autodisabled. This option can be used with -evacuate but not with -force


Stops HAD on the specified system.
