Restart / Shutdown

The Restart / Shutdown display panel supports several operations:

  • Restart - this executes a warm restart of CSa firmware without powering down the hardware
  • Shutdown - this ends all software processes and powers down the appliance
  • Graceful but immediate restart - this initiates a reset as soon as current jobs are complete
  • Graceful but immediate shutdown - the appliance shuts down after completing current jobs
  • Immediate hard restart - the system powers down completely and then restarts
