How to schedule a reload of a member switch in a stack.
Requirement:

 

How can we schedule a reboot of a MAS stack member?

Can I cancel a scheduled reboot?

In what different ways we can schedule a stack member reboot?

 



Solution:

Aruba Mobility access stack running Aruba OS version 7.4.1.12 and above.

 



Configuration:

 

First we will verify the stack:

(ArubaS3500-24P-US) #show stacking members

Stack status: Active, Stack Id: 000b866bd340557d17b2
Stack uptime: 3 days 12 hours 41 minutes 42 seconds
Id    Role       MAC Address        Priority  State     Model            Serial      Location
--    ----       -----------        --------  -----     -----            ------      --------
1     Secondary  00:1a:1e:09:0a:80  Preset    Active    ArubaS2500-24P   BJ0001240   Not Set
3  *  Primary    00:0b:86:6b:d3:40  Preset    Active    ArubaS3500-24P   AU0001346   Not Set

 

Then we can give the reload command:

A. To reload a stack member 1 after x minutes.

(ArubaS3500-24P-US) #reload 1  in 2
 Reload on memeber 1 is scheduled in 2 mins from now
 Do you want to continue(y/n)? y
 Your 1 member in the stack will restart after 2 mins

 

B. To reload a stack member at a given time:

(ArubaS3500-24P-US) #reload 1 at 13 3 1 26
 Do you want to continue(y/n)? y

 

Above command will reload the stack member 1 on 26th of first month at 13 hours 3 minutes.

 



Verification

 

On the console of rebooted switch, we can see:
