You needn't any commands for doing this.

there isn't a "shut down" command for those active devices.

you must physically turn off the power.

Provided you discipline yourself to save the configuration each change, then you can simply remove the power or switch off. If in doubt, save the configuration to NVRAM before you switch off. But there is no concept of "closing down".

Hi Kevin,

The only command that would be close would be the 'reload' command but this just reset's the router.

Hope this helps, Please vote below if so.

Hi,

 

You can turn off all the power supply remotely to shutdown the switch. It works well with cat9300.

 

Cat9300 standalone switch:

========

conf t

power supply 1 slot a off

power supply 1 slot b off

Cat9300 two switch stack:

========

conf t

power supply 1 slot a off

power supply 1 slot b off

power supply 2 slot a off

power supply 2 slot b off

 

NOTE: you will loose the remote connection and need to reseat the power cord to turn the switch up.

 

 

 

 

On the 9300s I have, it's done from exec, not from conf t
