Console Menu Subpage Options

Appliance Management

Reboot/Shut down System — Reboot or shutdown your appliance. See Reboot the appliance and Shut down the appliance.

Serial Console Access — Enable or disable access to standard output through the serial port. Enabling such access allows you to use terminal emulation through the serial port. See Enable and disable serial console access.

Clock/Timezone — Set the appliance clock and time zone. This is especially useful for clustered machines. See Set the clock and time zone .

Keyboard Layout — Select a language-based layout for your keyboard.

System Log Files — Access your appliance's log files. See Work with system log files.

Enable/Disable Independent Wallclock (Amazon EC2 images only) — Enable or disable time sync with the host server of the virtual appliance. When enabled, the virtual appliance will always perform time sync with the host server. The normal system time sync via NTP will have no effect. When disabled, the virtual appliance will not perform the time sync with the host server and will need another time sync method; for example, NTP.
