I'm writing here since I wasn't able to find a proper KB or doc explaining the diferrence in the below restart options:
If you have any clue... thanks.
@Enzino78 the mystery is still unsolved, no feedback from SNWL so far. It's a NSa 4700 and up thing, that's all we know so far.
Hope some one will answer soon or later :-)
Sonicwall transitioned virtual based systems. at the nsa 4700 and uper models. Sonicwall were using VxWorks OS over the past years.
First button (Restart Systems) : restart all of restart vm and host os (VxWorks).
Second Button ( Restart SonicOS) : only can restart vm SonicOS systems.
so, if I understood right you said, on the 4700 there are:
=> host OS running on VxWorks OS
=> guest OS running SonicOS vm
@Enzino78 AFAIK VxWorks is no longer in the mix for Gen7, dunno if there is such a thing like a VxWorks based Hypervisor. I did not know that there is some form of isolation until 10 days ago.
The SonicOS itself is Linux based, IMHO using OpenDataplane and OpenFastpath for the network magic. But little to nothing known publicly.
