Scheduled reboot


Recommended Posts

Restarting the controller using a reboot driver is a terrible idea.

And before someone mentions it, rebooting it via hard reset of power by schedule is even worse. That being said, it is a common request, but it shouldn't be necessary and certainly isn't recommended.

If you're doing it as a backup mechanism if the controller crashes, my recommendation would be to use a pdu with a mechanism built in to ping the controller and reboot when it's offline (but, it should wait a minimum of 1hr offline to ensure that it won't reboot during an upgrade). Wattbox is an example but there are plenty of others (Alan could confirm, but maybe Gude can do it too).

There's no reason to schedule rebooting on regular basis, and it's asking for trouble. I wouldn't recommend it
