I run the Fuel Master Node with the line comand "sh". If i turn the server off, I lose everything I did and I have to do all the instalation process again. How can I proceed?

You'll want to leave the Fuel Master up, if possible. It pulls logs from the servers and acts as a front end to see the status of your environment, in that you can see if the nodes are up and what they are configured as. Unlike other solutions the Fuel Master lives in the environment for the duration of the environment.

If you want to pull the Fuel Master out then you'll need to customize a few things in the environment.

If you are just looking for ways to shut down your environment, then bring it back up, you should be shutting down in this order:

Computes (non controller type nodes or DB) Controllers (also other controller types like DB/Plugin) Fuel

Then when you want to use your environment again you can bring it back up in this order:

Fuel Controllers Compute

I'm not sure if I got the gist of the matter. I just want to know if there is some way to shutdown or restart the host machine without losing all my installed server nodes and my configured environments. Because I'm not the owner of this machine. It belongs to an academic institution, my college in this case, so if acidentally occur a blackout there or somebody simply turn off the machine, I need to have some disaster recovery plan.
