Rebooting a grid node

When you reboot a grid node, all services are started automatically.

Before you begin

You must have the Passwords.txt file.

Steps

  1. From the service laptop, log in to the grid node:
    1. Enter the following command: ssh admin@grid_node_IP
    2. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    3. Enter the following command to switch to root: su -
    4. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    When you are logged in as root, the prompt changes from $ to #.
  2. Optionally, stop services: service servermanager stop
    This is an optional, but recommended step.
  3. Reboot the grid node: reboot
    If a reboot command is directly issued to the system, you might not be able log in to the system remotely to monitor the shutdown process. Services can take some time to shut down.
  4. Log out of the command shell: exit
