When stopping an IBM i LPAR through the HMC using the operating system a PWRDWNSYS command is initiated which bypasses the Exit Point Program for the POWER DOWN exit point.
When using the HMC to shutdown an IBM i LPAR you are unaware that the exit point of the shutdown is bypassed. This will prevent stopping IBM i applications stopping in an orderly manner. Furthermore it is an exception to the rule of a "normal" PWRDWNSYS.
