Execute a soft reboot to the server.


The ‘‘‘rebootSoft’’’ method reboots the server by issuing a reset command to the server’s remote management card via soft reboot. When executing a soft reboot, servers allow all processes to shut down completely before rebooting. Remote management commands are unable to be issued within 20 minutes of issuing a successful soft reboot in order to avoid server failure. Remote management commands include:

rebootSoft rebootHard powerOn powerOff powerCycle
