What happens when power restored?



  • Hi

    I have a couple of Netgate SG-4860 appliances set up as a HA pair in a remote overseas office. There is a planned power outage this weekend so I plan to shut down the two appliances remotely through the web console.
    My query is - What will happen when power is restored? Will the unit power up again? I suspect this will be the standard behaviour as I cannot see a power switch on photos of the devices so I can only assume they must power up whenever power is applied?

    Thanks for any clarification/confirmation.

    They will power on when power is restored.

    These don't happen to be the rack-mount 1U model of the SG-4860, right? You do mention HA pair, and I thought those were only the rack mount models.

    I've got one of those rack mount units, and on the back side, there is definitely a power switch and what I'm assuming is a reset/reboot button. I think mine does, in fact, reboot after a complete power outage (after the UPS battery runs out of juice), but I'm not too sure.
