How to stop an ap from rebooting automatically due to timeout in "apboot" mode

Environment- This article applies to all the Aruba AP's.

Answer- We all know that all the Aruba AP's have console ports. This can be used for various troubleshooting purposes and to set static parameters.
The "apboot" mode has a timeout value, which means if it is left idle the AP will reboot. To overcome this we need to execute a command as shown below:

apboot>
apboot>
Timed out waiting for command

=======[AP will start to reboot]======

APBoot 1.2.4.4 (build 26618)
Built: 2011-01-07 at 13:42:04...
------------------------snipped-----------------------


apboot> autoreboot off
Will not reboot due to idle timeout
apboot>

Now to make the AP reboot or continue with the boot process we can either execute "reset" or "boot".

"autoreboot" is a one time command and hence the next time we enter into "apboot" mode, this command has to be re-executed.
