Occasionally, it is necessary to shut down the Delphix Engine for maintenance purposes. This topic outlines how to perform a safe shutdown of the Delphix Engine. Before performing a shutdown, it is important that all your VDBs are shut down and dSources disabled in order to maintain data integrity. Once the Delphix Engine is powered off, you can power it back on through the vSphere console like any other VM.
