Cisco ASA un attended reboots

The ASA has the ability to execute pre-scheduled reboots for unattended reboots. This is great for when you have a need to reboot a cisco ASA cluster,  but don't want to wake up for it at 02:00AM.


The cli cmd  reload save-config  in  00:10 noconfirm wil reboot the unit after saving the cfg and the cfg with no confirmation in 10minutes.

To validate if any reloads are schedule execute the following command
show reload 

To cancel a reload, execute the following command reload cancel.

In a heavy users environment it's ideal to include a reason on the command line so you can warn all active login  of the reason for the reboot

Even a bigger detailed note  should be used imho
