Restarting a Vault

Note: This content is no longer updated. For the latest content, please go to the user guide for M-Files Online. For information on the supported product versions, refer to our lifecycle policy.

The restart operation takes the vault offline and brings it back online in one go. With this operation, you avoid the risk of leaving the vault accidentally offline. When a vault is offline, also any open sessions that users may have are closed. Users cannot check in objects or log in to a vault until the vault is back online.

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Right-click a vault which is in the online state.
  4. Select Operations > Restart.
  5. Click Yes at the prompt.
