Rebooting the storage system from the system console

You can reboot the storage system if the system console is displaying the command prompt.

Steps

  1. Send an advance warning to CIFS users to alert them to save their files and close any applications.

    Attention: Never interrupt CIFS service by halting the storage system without giving advance warning to CIFS users. Halting the CIFS service without giving CIFS users enough time to save their changes can cause data loss.

  2. At the storage system prompt, enter the following command:
    reboot [-t minutes]

    -t minutes is the amount of time that elapses before the reboot occurs.
