Restarting DCS Instances

Updated at: Mar 17, 2020 GMT+08:00

On the DCS console, you can restart one or multiple DCS instances at a time.

  • After a single-node DCS instance is restarted, data will be deleted from the instance.
  • While a DCS instance is restarting, it cannot be read from or written to.
  • An attempt to restart a DCS instance while it is being backed up may result in a failure.


The DCS instances you want to restart are in the Running or Faulty state.


  1. Log in to the DCS console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner of the management console and select a region and a project.
  3. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.
  4. On the Cache Manager page, select one or more DCS instances you want to restart.
  5. Click Restart above the DCS instance list.
  6. In the displayed dialog box, click Yes.

    It takes 1 to 30 minutes to restart DCS instances. After DCS instances are restarted, their status changes to Running.

    • By default, only the instance process will restart. However, selecting Forced Restart will restart the VM on which the chosen DCS instance runs.
    • To restart a single instance, you can also click Restart in the same row as the instance.
