The url for cli MSA2000: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01755995/c01755995.pdf
See shutdown command at page 181. --> "shutdown both"
On the other side and I supose you know, remember to power on before the slave msa2000 (if exist), the msa2000fc (where exist the fiber channel controllers), and after few minutes the blades.
Hope to help you
In the GUI web interface of the MSA2000, go to the Manage >> Restart >> over there you will see Shutdown drop down menu.
Remember, before you shut it down to turn off all the connections that goes to the MSA. And when you start up, start from top to down, i mean from your SAN Switch, SAN controllers then have a coffee break and come back to start host by host based on your Startup / Shutdown priority in your ESX hosts.
Your VMs will automatically comes up in order

I am having the same problem. In emergency case there is no time for a web interface, there is an automated system which fires up some commands with PLINK or PUTTY. The problem is, that the MSA2000 emulation of SSH doesnt accept commands in this way.
Is there any option which must be turned on (within MSA or within PUTTY) to do this work.
The only alternative could be using AUTOIT.
I know this post is old, but I'm having the same problem.
Any luck on this?
I'm working with plink too, putty also possible, I don't mind which one.
I can't get it work that command shutdown sc both is executed via script.
Would be great to have a solution on this.
Thanks in advance
