Restart and shutdown

This page tells you how to restart or shut down the VM hosting the Sophos appliance.

If you want to restart Sophos NDR or a third-party integration running on the appliance, see NDR or Integrations.

You might need to restart the VM if the Sophos appliance isn't running properly and an appliance restart hasn't fixed the problem.

All integrations on the VM stop running and reset.

To restart your Sophos VM, click Actions and select Restart.


Shut down the VM

If you shut down the VM, the Sophos appliance and all integrations stop running.

To shut down your VM, click Actions and select Shutdown.
