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

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

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.

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.
