Reboot a Cluster Member

You can use the Reboot member command in Firebox System Manager to reboot a cluster member. This is equivalent to the File > Reboot command that you use to reboot a non-clustered device.

  1. Select Tools > Cluster > Reboot member.
    The Reboot member dialog box appears.

  1. Select the cluster member you want to reboot.
  2. Type the configuration passphrase.
  3. Click OK.
    The cluster member reboots, and then rejoins the cluster.

If you reboot the cluster master, this triggers failover. The backup master becomes the master. After the reboot is complete, the original master rejoins the cluster as the backup master.
