Is this even a topic of discussion in the product for any version? This has been a huge topic of discussion and anger since version 5 came out and zero progress has been made
And now in V6, it seems to be getting WORSE.
1) It seems like the changes to the repository in v6, cause the checks that runs after a dirty shutdown to take longer (just a guess)
2) The unsupported powershell script that was provided by DELL for v5 does not work for 6 and Support just told me there is no script for 6 and never will be.
3) Long running jobs. With the introduction of cloud archives, exports etc, we are seeing massive jobs that run (and block other jobs like backups but that is another issue) for days, meaning scheduling a restart becomes even harder.
I am not even asking for the Core to be able to cleanly shutdown during an OS shutdown (something that every other application in the world seems to manage) But how is this not a single button(s) on the GUI "Prepare for Shutdown" and "Core has been restarted" (to un-pause jobs)
Or at the very least, a single supported powershell script to perform this basic function?
We have dozens of Cores in various geographic locations and managing simple shutdowns is such a massive problem for us.

For what it's worth. With AA all we ever did was shut off the O/S and it was never an issue. New install of RR and had some concerns so I killed the core service (services.msc), restarted the O/S and restarted the core and had no problems. To be fair we don't have round the clock snapshots and I waited for a pause in the action first but I wanted to pass it on for when this gets read in the future.
