How to reboot your Elastic Metal server

Reviewed on 22 January 2024Published on 26 May 2021

If your Elastic Metal server is no longer reachable from the internet or does not work as expected, you can reboot it from the Scaleway console. The reboot feature launches a power-cycle on the physical hardware and restarts the machine.

Security & Identity (IAM)

To perform certain actions described below, you must either be the Owner of the Organization in which the actions will be performed, or an IAM user with the necessary permissions.

Requirements
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have configured your SSH key
  • You have created and installed an Elastic Metal server
  1. Click Elastic Metal in the Bare Metal section of the Scaleway console side menu. The Elastic Metal dashboard displays.
  2. Click the name of the server you want to reboot.
  3. Click the Reboot button on the server information page.
  4. Select the Normal reboot mode and confirm by clicking Reboot Elastic Metal server.
    Important

    Rebooting your server may corrupt your data if there are unwritten files. Your software will not be stopped before the server is being rebooted, and you should use this feature only when your server is not reachable over the internet.
