Reboot vs Restart on 5520?

Hello,

What's the difference between a Reboot and Restart? I have a 5520 running 8.2.170 and from the GUI, on the Commands menu, it has both options.

It also has a Reset to Factory Default which is quite obvious. 

Thanks!

Hi Eric,

 

Fast Restart is used in below scenarios instead of reset system (which is a complete reload)

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/technotes/8-6/b_Cisco_Wireless_LAN_Controller_Configuration_Best_Practices.html#concept_299DC562EE1348CBA6470D152E7F889A

 

The Fast restart enhancement aims to reduce network and service downtime by up to 73% when making
changes to the following features:
• LAG Configuration Change
• Mobility Mode Change
• Web-Auth Certificate Change
• Clear Configuration
Without fast restart, the above changes required a full system restart. Fast restart feature is supported on
the Cisco WLC 5520, 7510, 8510, 8540 and vWLC starting release 8.1. It can be invoked using the CLI
by issuing the Restart command or by clicking Save and Restart within the Web-UI

Hi

 Dont see any difference. Most important, both will cause downtime on your network.
