Stopping and Restarting the TCA6000 or TCA6500 Timing Client

The TCA6000 and TCA6500 Timing Clients can be rebooted, or a clean powerdown can be performed by halting all the processes running on the Timing Client. To reboot or halt the Timing Client:

  1. Click the Admin tab.
  2. Select the Upgrade tab at the top of the screen.
  3. Click the Reboot or Halt button.
  4. Click Apply to reboot or halt the Timing Client.

The Timing Clients provide carrier-class upgrade capability. Two flash partitions are allocated to store software images. All upgrade images are placed in volatile RAM first, and written to the inactive flash partition. Depending on the image chosen to run on the Timing Client, the active or non-active images can be selected by selecting the image using the drop-down arrow. Once the unit has been rebooted, the new—selected—image will be running.
