Resets the management controller.
This hardware command resets the management controller, the CPLD, and the I4 switch chips. The command requests a reboot, and in most situations, this should be done. The managementreset command also forces links to retrain upon management controller services startup. The -r option bypasses the query for reboot and reboots automatically.
The following example shows how to reset the management controller and InfiniBand fabric services with the managementreset command.
# managementreset Stopping Environment daemon, please wait Resetting CPLD, please wait Restarting Environment daemon Reboot needed to reconnect to I4 and enable IB ports Do you want do reboot now [yes/no]:yes Broadcast message from root (pts/0) (Fri Nov 20 17:10:27 2009): The system is going down for reboot NOW! # Connection to 126.96.36.199 closed by remote host. Connection to 188.8.131.52 closed. #
Note - By rebooting the management controller, the link to the management console is severed. You must re-access the management controller to regain administrative control.
