16.3.6. Safe Shutdown and Restart
To shut down the cluster, enter the following command in a shell
on the machine hosting the MGM node:
ndb_mgm -e shutdown
-e option here is used to pass a command to
the ndb_mgm client from the shell. See
Section 4.3.1, “Using Options on the Command Line”. The command causes the
ndb_mgm, ndb_mgmd, and any
ndbd processes to terminate gracefully. Any
SQL nodes can be terminated using mysqladmin
shutdown and other means.
To restart the cluster, run these commands:
On the management host (
our example setup):
ndb_mgmd -f /var/lib/mysql-cluster/config.ini
On each of the data node hosts
Remember not to invoke this command

an NDBD node normally.
On the SQL host (

To restore the cluster from backup requires the use of the
ndb_restore command. This is covered in
Section 126.96.36.199, “How to Restore a Cluster Backup”.
