Choose one of the available options:

  • Forceful Server Reboot: This option forcefully reboots your system and may result in data loss.

  • Graceful Server Reboot: This option initiates a system reboot without data loss as the reboot is queued. All services will be stopped normally, allowing ongoing operations to complete.

  • Graceful Server Reboot is recommended, but if there is a high load on the server, it may not be sufficient. Only use the Forceful Server Reboot option if the Graceful Reboot fails.

After selecting your preferred option, click the "Proceed" button.
