Reboot and Shutdown
The system reboot is required when upgrading or installing new software packages.
The packages are installed during the system shutdown.
Use the reboot command to reboot the router:
[MikroTik] system> reboot Reboot, yes? [y/N]: y system will reboot shortly
Only users which are members of groups with reboot privileges can reboot the router or shutdown. The reboot process sends termination signal to all running processes, unmounts the file systems, and reboots the router.
Before turning the power off for the router, the system should be brought to halt using the halt command:
[MikroTik] system> shutdown Shutdown, yes? [y/N]: y system will shutdown promptly
For most systems, it is necessary to wait approximately 30 seconds for a safe power down.
The reset command clears all configuration of the router and sets it to the default
including the login name and password ('admin' and no password):
[MikroTik] system> Dangerous! Reset anyway? [y/N]:
The router is rebooted after the reset command.
The router identity is displayed before the command prompt.
It is also used for DHCP client as 'host name' parameter when reporting it to the DHCP server.
The router identity can be set using the /system identity set command:
[MikroTik] system identity> print name: MikroTik [MikroTik] system identity> set name=Our_GW [Our_GW] system identity>
Date and Time Settings
The system Date and Time settings are managed under the /system clock menu:
[MikroTik] system clock> print time: apr/26/2001 00:41:45 [MikroTik] system clock>
To set the system date and time use the set command:
[MikroTik] system clock> set date New system date [month/DD/YYYY] time New system time [HH:MM:SS] [MikroTik] system clock> set date=oct/14/2001 time=20:25:00 [MikroTik] system clock> print time: oct/14/2001 20:25:03 [MikroTik] system clock>
Date and time settings become permanent and effect BIOS settings.
Configuration Change History
The history of system configuration changes is held until the next router shutdown.
The invoked commands can be 'undone' using the /undo command.
By invoking the command several times, the configuration changes can be 'undone'
in reverse order they have been invoked.
Use the /system history print command to see the list of performed actions:
[MikroTik] system history> print ACTION BY TYPE address removed admin undo route added admin undo system identity changed admin undo system time changed admin undo [MikroTik] system history>The list is printed with the newest actions at the top. Thus, in this example, the /undo command would 'undelete' the address which has been removed:
[MikroTik] system history> /undo [MikroTik] system history> print ACTION BY TYPE address removed admin redo route added admin undo system identity changed admin undo system time changed admin undo [MikroTik] system history>
Tip: If you accidentally removed some item, or set wrong argument value, just execute the /undo command to undo previously done action. The /redo would do the opposite - redo the previous undo action.
