Answer

Soft Reboot
  • Only reboots the processor and is the default reboot method
  • Runs through firmware and does not issue a Power On Self Test (POST)
  • Command example:

reboot

Hard Reboot
  • Resets the entire board
  • Bypasses normal reboot hooks in the code
  • Runs through firmware and does not issue a POST
  • Command example:

sysReboot

Hard Power on Event
  • Only occurs when power is interrupted (power loss, powering off the controller)
  • Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) registers are reset
  • E-Series Controllers determine if a hard power on event occurred by checking the FPGA registers during Start-of-Day (SOD)
  • Issues a POST
