[erlang-questions] restart one machine

Caveat,

Although, using these commands may restart or shutdown the Operating
system there is no guarantee that it will reboot the hardware.
Rebooting the hardware is going to be system dependent (motherboard)
especially on Windows (I have tested this many times using Visual
basic). You may have to add in another program to Windows Server or an
older machine running Linux.

Windows Server:

shutdown -r -t 01
