CMS Power Down & Reboot

On the CLI at ROOT

Shutdown CMS
/usr/bin/shutdown -y -g0 -i0

Reboot CMS
/usr/bin/shutdown -y -g0 -i6

Power Up CMS
Push the button and wait. Once the CMS is up from the CLI

tail /cms/pbx/acd1/spi.err

You will see a number of messages PUMP-UP but you are waiting for the DATAX with the number of calls beside it which means you are seeing data from the switch.


**Notes added by Giel**

It worth noting that these commands are used on Avaya CMS running on the Solaris operating system.

/usr/bin/shutdown -y -g0 -i0 will take you to the OK boot prompt, which means it will shut the software but still allow you to run diagnostics on the hardware. This run level can also be reached by pressing the STOP + A keys on the Sun Keyboard.

Init 0= OK boot prompt (i0)
Init 3 = Normal running level (i3)
Init 5 =Shutdown and power off (i5)
Init 6=Reboot (i6)

The “g0” refers to the grace period before shutdown

  1. Thanks for this post. And all of the posts, really. It’s a super helpful resource.

    What release of CMS does this shutdown command apply to? All?

    When we upgraded from R13 to R16.2 we moved on to a Sun SPARC T5220 platform that came with a ILOM service processor. It’s been a while since I tried to shutdown this platform, but I seem to recall having issues before, as in the Solaris shutdown command took me to some sort of ILOM prompt (not the black screen / no lights on box that I had expected). The server might have still be functionally off at that point, but the ILOM stuff caught me off guard.
