Restart Server

When you restart an Oracle VM Server, an operating system restart command is sent and the Oracle VM Server is restarted. Before you can restart an Oracle VM Server, you must stop any running virtual machines, or place the Oracle VM Server into maintenance mode to automatically migrate the running virtual machines.

When the Oracle VM Server is restarted and rejoins the server pool, the master Oracle VM Server initiates any pending HA operations in the server pool. When Oracle VM Manager is notified that the Oracle VM Server is online and available, any pending state changes are reconciled before any policy actions are resumed.

There is more information on the implications of restarting servers covered in Rebooting and Changing Power State of Oracle VM Servers in the Oracle VM Concepts Guide.

To restart Oracle VM Servers:

  1. Stop or migrate any running virtual machines. To stop the virtual machines see Section, “Stop Virtual Machines”. To automatically migrate the virtual machines to other Oracle VM Servers in the server pool, place the Oracle VM Servers into maintenance mode , see Section, “Edit Server” .

  2. Click the Servers and VMs tab.

  3. Select the server pool in which the Oracle VM Server resides in the navigation tree.

  4. Select Servers from the Perspective drop-down list. Select one or more Oracle VM Servers in the management pane, and click Restart Restart icon in the perspective toolbar.

The Oracle VM Servers are restarted.
