SonicWave has No Scheduled Reboot - Big Problem
I only found one other discussion thread about this in the forum (link pasted below). The reply suggested a page that talks about a different model of Access Point and a secret /diag.html page to try to get to where a person would actually find a Scheduled Reboot setting. Why you would hide that essential function I don't know.. very bad idea.
The Sonic Wave does not work with that suggested link though. It simply reports "Forbidden" if you try to get to /diag.html.
Not having a scheduled reboot function is insane , absolutely insane. Anyone who works in tech knows you must reboot devices regularly to keep things running smoothly. It is not just Windows that sucks at maintaining stability, every OS/code has its flaw that a reboot very quickly cleans up the problems with when a device goes off the rails.
I am not supposed to be at work right now - but I had to go log in the the port and manually reboot a Sonic Wave 621 because after 12 days uptime, brand new unit, it had suddenly stopped allowing anyone to log in. It had no devices connected to it anymore, and was telling everyone their password was wrong. They were not wrong.
Once manually rebooted, everyone could connect.
If the device had a function to setup a reboot schedule, like every other product on the market has had for over 10 years, including crappy little ASUS brand units that we use to be using, this issue would largely vanish. A clean boot on a daily basis, setup for 5am or so, would ensure our Sonic Waves run flawlessly and eliminate getting a call at any possible day/hour to do it manually simply because the devices have not been rebooting themselves.
I have 9 of these things to manage so far. I am not happy that I am having to do this manual reboot, and if it continues, I will be sending the bill for my time to you Sonic Wall. Add the Scheduled Reboot to make this a sensible product.
PS - I have submitted this as an REF to Sales (as per a Tech Support Ticket suggestion) twice already.
