Reset a Host Using the CLI¶

A host can be reset out-of-band, stopping and restarting the host without ensuring that all system processes are shut off first.


This function is not available on a StarlingX Simplex system.

Use this selection only if the host-reboot command fails.


Board management must be configured on the system. For more information, see Provision Board Management Control Using the CLI.


  • Run the following command to power on a host from the controller’s command line.

    ~(keystone_admin)$ system host-reset <hostname>
