Schedule an Appliance Reboot
Administration > Tools > Reboot > Schedule Appliance Reboot
You can schedule an appliance for any of three types of reboot:
Reboot: Reboots the appliance gracefully. This is your typical “vanilla” restart.
Use case: You are changing the deployment mode or other configuration parameters that require a reboot.
Erase Network Memory and Reboot: Erases the Network Memory cache and reboots the appliance.
Use case: You need to restart the appliance with an empty Network Memory cache.
Shutdown: Shuts down the appliance and turns the power off. To restart, go to the appliance and physically turn the power on with the Power switch.
You are decommissioning the appliance.
You need to physically move the appliance to another location.
You need to re-cable the appliance for another type of deployment.
Behavior During Reboot
A physical appliance enters into one of the following states:
hardware bypass, if deployed in-line (Bridge mode)
open-port state, if deployed out-of-path (Router/Server mode)
Unless a virtual appliance is configured for a high availability deployment, all flows are discontinued during reboot.
TIP: To specify the time zone for scheduled jobs and reports, navigate to Orchestrator > Software & Setup > Setup > Timezone for Scheduled Jobs.
