 Shutdown Procedures
 If running Oracle Solaris Cluster OSC3.3u1/S10 or OSC4.0/S11 Then you need to shutdown the clustering service. Run the following on all global zones involved in clustering to prevent failover when shutting down applications and zones.
 If running OpsCenter 12C in SuperCluster mode you will have to also halt the enterprise controller so it does not attempt to fail over while bringing down CRS.
  Follow applicable documentation to cleanly shutdown all user applications or databases running in zones or LDoms.
 Obtain a list of all running zones
  Shutdown all running zones
  Obtain a list of all running LDoms
  Obtain the names of the LDoms with direct hardware access.
  Stop the domains from the ldm list command one that are not on this list
  Stop the guest domain with hardware access
  Shutdown the CRS stack on all  domains running Oracle CRS.
 Verify all oracle processes are stopped and if they are not remediate as necessary
  Shutdown Exadata storage cell services and operating systems
  Shutdown the operating system of the control LDom
  Connect to the compute node ILOM and stop SYS
  Show and then set, if need be, the power switch settings so the T4-4 or T5-8 machines DO NOT power on automatically when the rack power is restored. the following show the settings that you want to reach.
  Shutdown the  ZFS Storage Appliance
  The switches do no have specific power off instructions they will be powered off when power is removed from the rack.
  Flip the breakers on the PDUs to the off position.
 Startup Procedures
  Flip the breakers on all PDUs to the on position
  Verify and if necessary fix the partitioning on the IB Switches
  Startup the  ZFS Storage Appliance
  Verify the startup of the Exadata storage cells
  Bring up the T4-4 or T5-8 systems
  Verify the system
  Restart all applicable applications and test.
