Remote Reboot Facility

Audience: Systems Administrator

Date: June 1, 2002

The Remote Reboot Facility allows the system to be rebooted through a native (integrated) serial port. The system is rebooted when the reboot string is received at the port, followed by a confirmation response of 1. This facility is useful when the system does not otherwise respond but is capable of servicing serial port interrupts.
