Boot Linode

post
https://api.linode.com/v4/linode/instances/{linodeId}/boot

Boots a Linode you have permission to modify. If no parameters are given, a Config profile will be chosen for this boot based on the following criteria:

  • If there is only one Config profile for this Linode, it will be used.
  • If there is more than one Config profile, the last booted config will be used.
  • If there is more than one Config profile and none were the last to be booted (because the Linode was never booted or the last booted config was deleted) an error will be returned.
