Rebooting a compute node is different from restarting a compute node. Restarting a compute node, as described in Restarting a Database Deployment, stops and removes the Compute Cloud Service instance on which the compute node is running and then creates and starts a new Compute Cloud Service instance for the compute node. Rebooting a compute node uses a Linux command to restart the Compute Cloud Service instance on which the compute node is running.
- Connect as the
opcuser to the compute node.
For detailed instructions, see Connecting to a Compute Node Through Secure Shell (SSH).
- Start a root-user command shell:
$ sudo -s #
- Enter the command to reboot the compute node:
Do not use the
shutdown —hcommands to shut down the compute node. Doing so will stop the compute node indefinitely and will require manual intervention by Oracle Cloud system administrators to restart the compute node.Your connection to the compute node is closed and the compute node reboots.
