- ssh <NETID>@<HOSTNAME> # The hostname of your server follows the URL for your JupyteHub instance. e.g.: https://phys999-jupyterhub.engrit.illinois.edu implies a hostname of phys999-jupyterhub.engrit.illinois.edu
- Once you are logged into the system, you can just run "sudo reboot" and the machine will reboot.
- Please note, the jupyterhub service on the server may take up to 15 minutes to start after a reboot.
