  • on – to perform a power on or activation of a partition
  • off – to perform a power off of a managed system or hard reset of a partition
  • osreset – to reset the operating system on the partition
  • osshutdown – to shutdown the operating system on the partition
  • reset – to perform a soft reset of a partition
