Issue Details

I have a PXIe embedded controller in a PXIe chassis and when I shutdown the controller through Windows, the controller powers off but the chassis remains on.  How can I get the chassis to power off with the controller?


The chassis should power off when the controller shuts down.  It is recommended to update the BIOS on the controller to fix this issue.
