Restarting the Device

Restarting the Device

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before restarting the device, complete the following tasks:
  • Configure system startup files.


Use one of the following methods to restart the device:
  • Restart the device immediately after configuration: The device restarts immediately after the reboot command is run.
  • Restart the device at scheduled time: The device can be restarted at a specified time later. When the configuration is complete, you can configure the device to restart at time when few services are running to minimize the impact of device restart on services.
The device restarts with the specified startup software. If the specified startup software is damaged, the device restarts with the backup startup software. If the restart still fails, the device searches the valid startup software package on the storage devices in the sequence "Flash memory-> SD card-> USB flash drive." If more than one valid startup software package is discovered, the device starts with the first discovered. When the device finds valid system software packages and configuration files on the storage device, it selects a rollback version and restarts with the selected version. If the device does not find valid system software and configuration file, it repeats the preceding operations.

The AR100&AR120&AR150&AR160&AR200&AR1200 series, AR2201-48FE, AR2202-48FE, AR2204-27GE, AR2204E-D-27GE, AR2204-24GE, AR2204-27GE-P, AR2204-51GE-P, AR2204-48GE-P, AR2204E, AR2204E-D, AR2204-51GE, AR2204-51GE-R, AR2220L-DC, AR2220L-AC and AR3670 support the flash memory and USB flash drive. The AR2220-AC, AR2220-DC, AR2220E, AR2240C support the flash memory, hard disk and USB flash drive. The AR2204, AR2240 and AR3260 (using SRU40, SRU60, SRU80, SRU100, SRU100E, SRU200E, SRU200 and SRU400) support the flash memory, Micro SD card, and USB flash drive. The AR2240, AR2204XE-DC and AR2204XE support the Micro SD card and USB flash drive.

If the device starts using the system software package in the flash memory or SD card that contains a lot of fragmented files, the startup time is long. Delete unnecessary files in the flash memory or SD card.

  • Do not restart the device unless necessary because device restart causes service interruption in a short time.

  • Save the current configuration so that it will take effect after the device restarts.


  • Restart the device immediately.

    In the user view, run the reboot [ fast ] command to restart the device.

    • The fast parameter indicates quick restart of the device. The system does not ask you whether to save the configuration file in fast startup.

  • Restart the device at scheduled time.

    In the user view, run the schedule reboot { at time | delay interval | every time } command to restart the device at scheduled time.

    • at time specifies the specific time to restart the device.
    • delay interval specifies the waiting time before restarting the device.

Verifying the Configuration

  • If scheduled restart is configured, run the display schedule reboot command to check the configuration of device restart.
