Good day,

The best way to do this is too , put  your primary storage into maintenance mode first, secondly
disable your zone so your system VM's don't automatically try restart You system VM's will
start shutting down.

Not sure what the proper way to do so, but what I have done which has worked for me is as
follows.  The basic premise is that the management server DB is representative of the current
state of the system.  Therefore when you bring things back online, if they match the state
in the DB then CS will have no idea that you shut it down.

In my case I try to shutdown all the running instances from within CS.
Then stop the management server.  The next step is critical.  I use xenserver so I pull up
XenCenter and pause/stop any remaining instances (e.g. system VMs).  Then I proceed to shutdown
the hosts, storage and the the management server host (make sure CS will not auto start).
 When I bring things back online, I start all the instances that I stopped/paused outside
of CS and make sure everything looks the way it did when I stopped the management server.
 Only then do I start the management server process.
