Shutting down and restarting machines in a cluster

For some maintenance tasks, you might need to restart the services on a machine; for others, you need to reboot or shut down a machine. For example, you need to:

  • Restart services
  • Reboot
  • Shut down
    For all of these options on individual machines, the cluster must have fault tolerance enabled.

Warning

The control operations on the Cluster Management page apply to every machine in the cluster. Individual machines are controlled from the Actions drop-down.
