Cisco Call Manager restart or shutdown via CLI

– “UTILS SYSTEM RESTART” command from the console. Alternatively you can SSH to the server and issue the restart command remotely. The system will prompt you asking if you are sure you want to restart, to which you must respond “yes” and press ENTER. The system will now reboot.

– If you wish to properly power off the server, issue a “UTILS SYSTEM SHUTDOWN” command.

Another useful command when rebooting a server is the “UTILS SERVICE LIST” command. This command lists the status of all of the services on the server. It is common for a server to be pingable or have a login prompt at the console for quite some time before you can log into the GUI. To check the status of the server services, you can log into the consloe or SSH back into it and issue this command.
