Host States Reference

This page is a complete reference of all the Host states that will be useful for administrators doing troubleshooting and developers.

The simplified life-cycle is explained in the Hosts guide. That simplified diagram uses a smaller number of state names. That section should be enough for end-users and every-day administration tasks.

List of States
