Reboot SonicWaves Weekly

Is the a way to schedule a reboot of our SonicWaves every weekend?

    @Print_O_Stat from what I can tell there isn't the option in the cloud or on box to reboot them but this below may be all you require even though it does say SonicPoint N it may be worth a try to see if it does the SonicWaves also

    Thanks, Preston.

    Interestingly when I try to adjust this schedule I get this error:

    "! SonicPoint-N System Self Maintenance schedule: Data is incorrectly formatted."

    I'm on Gen 7 v5050

    In case anyone who has previously posted to this thread is interested, SonicWall released WNM update 4.3.1 in October.

    You now have the ability to schedule reboots.

    Go to Policies then Policy Hierarchy. Select your AP Policy then click the System tab. After activating the option, you can select a day and time to reboot.

    Glad to see this enhancement see the light of day. I only wish it had more flexibility (i.e., I don't need it once a week but once at the start of the month).
