System Power

In certain situations, you might need to power off the switch instead of rebooting. To power off the switch, you can run the Linux poweroff command.

cumulus@switch:~$ sudo poweroff

When you run the Linux poweroff command on the SN2201, SN2010, SN2100, SN2100B, SN3420, SN3700, SN3700C, SN4410, SN4600C, SN4600, or SN4700 switch, the switch reboots instead of powering off. To power off the switch, run the cl-poweroff command instead. The cl-poweroff command performs a hard abrupt power down instead of a graceful power down.

cumulus@switch:~$ sudo cl-poweroff
