reboot {[time mon day year hour min sec] | cancel} {slot slot-number }


Reboots the switch or SummitStack in the specified slot at a specified date and time.

Syntax Description

time Specifies a reboot date in mm dd yyyy format and reboot time in hh mm ss format.
cancel Cancels a previously scheduled reboot.
slot slot-number Specifies the slot number currently being used by the active stack node that is to be rebooted. NOTE: This variable is available only on SummitStack.



Usage Guidelines

If you do not specify a reboot time, the switch reboots immediately following the command, and any previously scheduled reboots are cancelled.

Prior to rebooting, the switch returns the following message:

Do you want to save configuration changes to primary and reboot? (y - save and reboot, n - reboot without save, <cr> - cancel command) 

To cancel a previously scheduled reboot, use the cancel option.

SummitStack Only

The reboot command used without any parameters on the master node reboots all members of the same active topology to which the master node belongs.

This version can only be used on the master node.

The reboot slot slot-number command can be used on any active node. The command will reboot the active node that is currently using the specified slot number in the same active topology as the issuing node. This variation cannot be used on a node that is not in stacking mode.

The reboot node-address node-address command can be used on any node whether or not the node is in stacking mode. It will reboot the node whose MAC address is supplied.

The reboot stack-topology {as-standby} command reboots every node in the stack topology. The command can be issued from any node whether or not the node is in stacking mode. If the as-standby option is used, every node in the stack topology restarts with master-capability disabled. This option is useful when manually resolving a dual master situation.


The following example reboots the switch at 8:00 AM on April 15, 2005:

reboot time 04 15 2005 08 00 00


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

The alternate BootROM image was added in ExtremeXOS 11.1.

The slot, node-address, stack-topology, and as-standby options were added in ExtremeXOS 12.0.
