The azure mobile restart command is the command to use to restart a Windows Azure Mobile Service. To use the command you just need to specify the name of the service you want to restart. Restart your service by entering the following into your CLI, substituting where appropriate:

azure mobile restart ‘[YOUR MOBILE SERVICE NAME]‘

I used the following:

azure mobile restart ‘zumo-00005′
