Cool power off command

Unlike Cisco routers, you power off your Viptela router via the command line.

Why would I not just pull the plug like with Cisco devices?  Excellent question.  It turns out that just pulling the plug “MAY CAUSE DISK CORRUPTION”.  Therefore use the poweroff command.

The shutdown will look like the following:

# poweroff
Are you sure you want to power off the system? [yes,NO] y
