How to trigger emergency reboot (not recommend for general use)

Written by Milan Potrok , IGEL COMMUNITY MEMBER OF THE YEAR


In our IGEL Community there was following challenge:

I was faced with a situation where I was unable to effect a reboot via UMS or any facility therein, and was unable to otherwise access the device physically, via ssh, or shadow.


With this work around it is possible to trigger on a different way.



  1. Create a .txt file.

  2. Upload .txt file to UMS

  3. Send to device via device menu->File UMS-> Device

  4. Save file to /proc/sysrq-trigger

  5. PROFIT!










This is not recommended for any sort of general usage, as its not a very clean reboot process, but apparently desperate times call for desperate measures.



Hope it works well, please let me know if you have some questions or comments!
