In the vSphere Client, you can reboot a node in vCenter Server.


Verify that the user you use to log in to the vCenter Server instance is a member of the SystemConfiguration.Administrators group in the vCenter Single Sign-On domain.


  1. Use the vSphere Client to log in as administrator@your_domain_name to the vCenter Server instance.
  2. On the vSphere Client main page, click Administration > Deployment > System Configuration.
  3. Under System Configuration, select a node from the list.
  4. Click REBOOT NODE.
