Shutdown sequence

Background:

We have 3 NFA servers (one console, one DSA, one harvester, for NetFlow, could you send me the detailed instruction for these 3 servers to be shut down properly and physically moved to another data center? The same IP will be kept.

Environment:

These are the recommended steps to shutdown and power off the NFA servers.

            CA NFA Reaper
            CA NFA DNS/SNMP Proxies
            CA NFA Harvester
            CA NFA Poller

Check for any other CA* or NETQoS service and shut them down manually.
At this point the harvester server can be shutdown.
