reboot

reboot—Reboot the Viptela device.

Any user can issue the reboot command, but the underlying logging mechanism does not log the user name. If you subsequently issue a show reboot history command, it shows that the reboot request was issued by an unnamed user.

Note that you cannot issue the reboot command while a software upgrade is in progress.

Command Syntax

reboot [now]
reboot other-boot-partition [no-sync]

Options

None
Reboot the device. The software prompts you to confirm that you really want to reboot.
Reboot Immediately
now
Reboot the device immediately, with no prompt asking you to confirm that you want to reboot.
Reboot and Use the Software Image on the Other Disk Partition
other-boot-partition
(Available in Releases 15.3 and earlier.) When rebooting the device, start the software image that is installed on the other disk partition. The software prompts you to confirm that you really want to reboot. If the other partition cannot be mounted or if the directory on the other partition is unreadable, an error message is displayed and the reboot operation is aborted.
Switch to the Other Software Image without Rebooting
other-boot-partition no-sync
(Available in Releases 15.3 and earlier.) Switch to the software image that is installed on the other disk partition without rebooting the device. If the other partition cannot be mounted or if the directory on the other partition is unreadable, an error message is displayed and the switch operation is aborted.
