Stopping and Restarting the TCA8000 or TCA8500 Timing Server

You can reboot the TCA8000 or TCA8500 Timing Server, or perform a clean power down by halting all the processes running on the Timing Server. To reboot or halt the Timing Server:

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

The TCA8000 and TCA8500 Timing Servers provide carrier-class upgrade capability. Two flash partitions are allocated to store software images. All upgrade images go to volatile RAM first, and are written to the inactive flash partition. The active or nonactive images can be selected to run on the Timing Server by selecting the image using the drop-down arrow. After the unit has been rebooted, the new—selected—image will be running.
