You can reboot a node in normal mode from the system prompt. A node is configured to boot from the boot device, such as a PC CompactFlash card.
Reboot a node by using the system node reboot command.
If you do not specify the -skip-lif-migration parameter, the command attempts to migrate data and cluster management LIFs synchronously to another node prior to the reboot. If the LIF migration fails or times out, the rebooting process is aborted, and Data ONTAP displays an error to indicate the LIF migration failure.
The node begins the reboot process. The Data ONTAP login prompt appears, indicating that the reboot process is complete.
