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.

    Use cases:

    • 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.
