Startup and shutdown (GS models)
Start: Turn on all JBOD unit(s) before turning on the head unit.
Caution: The RAID does not properly initialize if the JBOD unit(s) are not started first. If this happens, restart the head unit.
Stop: Turn off the head unit using a clean operating system shutdown before the JBOD unit(s). Always wait for the head unit to power off before turning off the JBOD unit(s).
Caution: Shutting down a JBOD unit with the head unit powered on leaves the RAID array in a confused state. If this happens, 1) turn off the head unit, 2) turn on JBOD unit(s), and 3) restart head unit.
