Restarting through the web interface is available only for the application ISO image. If the application is installed from an RPM or DEB package, the restart is performed by using the operating system tools.

A restart of the operating system of a node may be required for applying certain updates, such as OpenSSL library updates. If this is the case, the cluster nodes table displays the Operating system restart is required notification.

To restart the node with role Control through the application web interface:

  1. In the application web interface, select the Nodes section.
  2. In the cluster nodes table, select the node with role Control.

    A window containing information about the node opens.

  3. Click Restart.
  4. In the confirmation window, click Yes.

The operating system will be restarted. This may take some time. Reload the browser page after several minutes. After the restart completes, you will see the page for connecting to the web interface of the application.

Traffic processing will be stopped before the restart completes.
