Rebooting a Top-of-Rack switch

  • The reload command performs a "cold reboot" (power off and restart) of the control processor (CP). If the power-on self-test (POST) is enabled, POST is executed when the system comes back up.
  • The fastboot command performs a "cold reboot" (power off and restart) of the control processor (CP), bypassing POST when the system comes back up. Bypassing POST can reduce boot time significantly.

CAUTION

Do not perform a reload command between a chassis disable command and a chassis enable command. Your ports will be closed.
