Shutdown or Reboot

In certain situations, you may want to turn off or restart your UCx system. In many cases, users simply disconnect and reconnect the power cord to reboot their system. We do not recommend this approach, because disconnecting the power may leave the file system with some files open and/or only partially written. Even though the system is designed to recover from such situations, a file system check is typically required during the next system startup (this operation can add up to several minutes to your system startup time). Due to that, proper shutdown and/or restart of the system is strongly recommended.

There are two ways to perform a proper shutdown or restart of the UCx system:

  1. If you have physical access to the UCx system, you can use the Power button on the system to initiate the shutdown of a running system or startup of a powered down system
  2. You can use the Web-based Configuration Utility to shut down or to restart the UCx system
When you initiate shutdown or restart of your UCx system, active calls are dropped without any warning! Please make sure that there are no active calls when performing these procedures.

To turn off your UCx system using the power button, simply press the power button once to initate the shutdown. The shutdown of the system takes certain amount of time - wait for the system to power down.

To restart your UCx system using the power button, press the power button once to initate the shutdown. The shutdown of the system takes certain amount of time - wait for the system to power down. Once the system is off, press the power button again to start the UCx system.

To turn off or restart your UCx system using the Web-based Configuration Utility, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Shutdown
  3. Select the desired action (Halt to stop the system or Reboot to restart the system) and press the Proceed button to initiate the action
  4. Wait for the system to power down or to restart
