Issuing the HALT Command Before Removing Power

Gracefully shutting down VersaSync by using the HALT command offers the following advantages over shutting the unit down by interrupting the power supply:

  • The shutdown process will be logged
  • The System Clock will update the Real Time Clock with the latest System Time.
  • VersaSync's file system will be synchronized, which under some circumstances will allow for faster startup next time the unit will be powered up again.

Note: Wait 30 seconds after entering the HALT command before removing power.
