In some cases, you must shut down a machine so it does not process any batch jobs from an environment or for a specific amount of time. You may want to, for example, shut down batch processing for all environments on a single machine so you can reboot the machine. Or you can shut down one environment on all machines so you can move scenes in that environment to other machines.
To determine if an environment is shut down on a particular machine, type Status in a Command Shell or Terminal. If you see an asterisk (*) in the SD column for a particular machine, this means at least one environment is shut down on that machine.
You can view the Supervisory and Periodic schedules for the shut down machines to isolate which environments are shut down.
