How to Shutdown Cisco FMC?

In this post I am going to show you how to shutdown Cisco FMC. I know it might seem basic, but some of us might not came across this task before. That would be the case if you are not a 100% focus on the FMC on a day to day activities. Anyway, there are three ways to shutdown Cisco FMC that I am aware of.

First method which is kind of the easiest is through FMC UI. Another from the FMC CLISH mode, and the last one is from the expert mode. Let's dive in all of these three methods in this little lab.

Mothod 1: Shutdown the FMC from UI

Go to System > Configuration > Process > Shutdown Management Center > Run Command

The above process was ran on an FMC running version 6.5.0 with the Classic UI theme. If you are on the FMC version 6.6.0 or 6.5.x with Light theme experimental enabled, then please follow this process below.

Go to the Cog icon > Configuration > Process > Shutdown Management Center > Run Command

Mothod 2: Shutdown the FMC from CLISH mode

I mentioned above the Light experimental theme. So, before we wrap up this post I want to show you how you can enable the Light experimental theme on FMC 6.5.x in case you don't find it already enabled. The new Light theme is the default theme on FMC version 6.6.0.

Enable/Disable Light experimental theme on FMC 6.5.x

Go to admin > User Preferences > General > UI Theme > Light (experimental)

This wraps up this post on how to shutdown Cisco FMC appliance.
