Restarting a cluster node

Restarting through the web interface is available only for the program ISO image. If the program 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 Control node using the program web interface:

  1. In the program web interface window, select the Nodes section.
  2. In the cluster nodes table, select the Control node.

    A window containing information about the node opens.

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

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 program.

Traffic processing will be stopped before the restart completes.
