Should the management controller enter an indeterminate state, you can reboot it. The Subnet Manager and other services are also restarted. Additionally, the links to the I4 switch chip are disabled and then re-enabled when the management controller reboots.
Note - The reboot command severs any management console link to the management controller. You must reaccess the management controller to regain administrative control.
