Airwave not doing scheduled reboot if set out 1 hour or more

Good evening. Have a question regarding the upgrading of Aruba MAS devices. If I do a firmware upgrade and set it for scheduled reboot longer than 1 hour it installs the new code but fails on the scheduled reboot.

 

If I go under 1 hour it works just fine. My code version for Airwave is 7.7.11.

 

Here is an example of a failed job:

I have an open case and so far no answer. We have just extended the SNMP timeout to 300 seconds versus default 120.

 

Thanks,

Re: Airwave not doing scheduled reboot if set out 1 hour or more

Hi,

 

I have the same issue using Airwave 8.0.6.3.

Any idea what the cause is ?

Re: Airwave not doing scheduled reboot if set out 1 hour or more

What firmware is the switch running?  Is the switch in management or monitor only mode in AirWave?  The switches need to be in management mode for the reboot feature to work currently.

 

QA will do some additional testing on this as well as file a RFE to allow for switch reboot in monitor only mode..

The devices are in Manage Read/Write mode.

I've had the problem with Aruba Wireless Controllers models 620, 650 and 3600.

I just ran into this problem with AirWave 8.0.8.1.  I have opened a TAC case but they have not given me an answer yet.
