Prerequisites

Readers of this document should be knowledgeable of the following:

  • Cisco ICM

  • Microsoft Windows Networking

Components Used

The information in this document is based on the software and hardware versions below.

The information presented in this document was created from devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If you are working in a live network, ensure that you understand the potential impact of any command before using it.

Use the shutdown Command

You can use the shutdown command in a Telnet session to shut down a Cisco ICM remote system.

Note: Use the shutdown command during a scheduled maintenance window.

The output below explains the options available for the shutdown command.

C:\>shutdown /?
Usage: SHUTDOWN [machine] [/M:message] [/D:delay] [/Force] [/Reboot] [/Cancel]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
           where:  machine is the network name of the computer to shutdown
                   message is displayed in the shutdown dialog
                   delay is the amount of time to wait before shutting down

                   /Force  Forcibly closes all applications
                   /Reboot Restarts the machine immediately after shutdown
                   /Cancel Cancels an existing shutdown order

In the following example, the shutdown command is going to shut down and reboot a machine called "geociscolgra".

C:\>shutdown \\geociscolgra /force /reboot
