Parameter

Description

all

Reboot all devices when VCS is enabled, or only this device itself if VCS is not enabled.

text

Reason for the reboot, 1-127 characters long.

in hh:mm

Schedule a reboot to take effect in the specified hours and minutes. The reboot must take place within approximately 24 hours.

at hh:mm

Schedule a reboot to take place at the specified time (using a 24-hour clock). If you specify the month and day, the reboot is scheduled to take place at the specified time and date. If you do not specify the month and day, the reboot takes place at the specified time on the current day (if the specified time is later than the current time), or on the next day (if the specified time is earlier than the current time). Specifying 00:00 schedules the reboot for midnight.

month

Name of the month, any number of characters in a unique string.

day

Number of the day, 1-31.

cancel

Cancel a scheduled reboot.

Mode                                                                   Privileged EXEC mode

Usage                                                                  The reboot command halts the system. If the system is set to restart on error, it reboots itself. Use the reboot command after configuration information is entered into a file and saved to the startup configuration.

You cannot reboot from a virtual terminal if the system is not set up for automatic booting. This prevents the system from dropping to the ROM monitor and thereby taking the system out of the remote user’s control.

If you modify your configuration file, the system will prompt you to save the configuration.

The at keyword can be used only if the system clock has been set on the ACOS device (either through NTP, the hardware calendar, or manually). The time is relative to the configured time zone on the ACOS device. To schedule reboots across several ACOS devices to occur simultaneously, the time on each ACOS device must be synchronized with NTP. To display information about a scheduled reboot, use the show reboot command.

Example                                                            The following example immediately reboots the ACOS device:

ACOS(config)#reboot

System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]:yes

Rebooting System Now !!!

Proceed with reboot? [yes/no]:yes

 

Example                                                            The following example reboots the ACOS device in 10 minutes:

ACOS(config)# reboot in 00:10

ACOS(config)# Reboot scheduled for 11:57:08 PDT Fri Apr 21 2014 (in 10 minutes)

Proceed with reboot? [yes/no]yes

ACOS(config)#

 

Example                                                            The following example reboots the ACOS device at 1:00 p.m. today:

ACOS(config)# reboot at 13:0013:00

ACOS(config)# Reboot scheduled for 13:00:00 PDT Fri Apr 21 2014 (in 1 hour and 2 minutes)

Proceed with reboot? [yes/no]yes

ACOS(config)#

 

Example                                                            The following example reboots the ACOS device on Apr 20 at 4:20 p.m.:

ACOS(config)# reboot at 16:20 apr 20

ACOS(config)# Reboot scheduled for 16:20:00 PDT Sun Apr 20 2014 (in 38 hours and 9 minutes)

Proceed with reboot? [yes/no]yes

ACOS(config)#

 

Example                                                            The following example cancels a pending reboot:

ACOS(config)# reboot cancel

%Reboot cancelled.
