Issue a "reload" at the CLI. As long as you've saved the configuration, you're good to go.

Will it ask any questions when i issue the reload command?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
It may ask if you want to save the config first. Since you already did you don't have to answer with a yes (but you could).

And it will also ask if you're sure you want to reboot. That one you will have to agree to.

Can it be rebooted through the web interface?

Sure.

IIRC:

Diagnostics -> Device Reset

Thanks!!! What about saving the current config through the web interface?

Sorry...I have a bunch of questions...When is says device reset? Does it actually reset it, like to a default config or factory settings or does it actually just reboot and keep the current config? Thanks again.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
No. It's a reboot.

The only way to reset the config is to issue a write erase and then reload the switch.

I suggest that you refer to the 5400 Management and Configuration Guide. It has all of this information.
