Re: AOS-CX (8320, 10.04.0001) checkpoint auto "minutes"
Big picture: The checkpoint auto "minutes" and auto recover feature does not seem to work if the admin disconnects from the aos-cx-8320 before the timer expires.
See one question at the end of this original post.
Step#1: I logged into the 8320. Then set the checkpoint timer for 3 minutes. Next, changed the hostname to "...3". Final, logged out of the 8320 before the 3 minute timer expired.
Step#2: I re-logged into the 8320 after 5 minutes. The hostname was still "...3". Also discovered the checkpoint timer was still "stuck on".
....LOG IN >>>>> SSH >>> 10.10.10.6......
HPE-AOSCX8320-TEMP2# check auto 3
Auto checkpoint mode expires in 3 minute(s)
HPE-AOSCX8320-TEMP2(config)# hostname HPE-AOSCX8320-TEMP3
Attempting username/password authentication...
The SSH connection closed: Connection closed by host.
after 5 minutes....LOG IN >>>>> SSH >>> 10.10.10.6......
HPE-AOSCX8320-TEMP3# check auto 3
Error: Checkpoint auto timer is already ON
Question#1: Should the checkpoint auto timer expire automatically and then recover even if the admin is disconnected???
EDITED: 20191118-0627 (CST)
I rebooted the 8320 and did not save the RUNN config.
Logged back into the 8320 with the following results:
Error: Checkpoint auto timer is already ON <<<<<

I've just checked on 10.04.0001 as you reported, with 1 minute instead of 3 minutes and it perfectly works as expected.
Try without logout and see if the switch is able to restore the configuration. you should see:
8325-3# WARNING: Restoring configuration. Do NOT add any new configuration.Configuration changes will take time to process, please be patient.Restoration successful
Thanks for your extra effort. I should have clarified my point. Yes, as long as I stay logged into the aos-cx (8320) the check auto "minutes" feature works perfectly for me.
My problem: I have remote sites that if I am disconnected due to my ignorant configuration, I need the 8320 to revert back to the original RUNN config which in theory should allow me to remotely re-attach to the 8320 a an admin. My log-off steps are similating a bad config that disconnects me feature set.
Understood, and this is what I tested (by disconnected my ssh session and connecting after 2 minutes). I confirm it worked as expected on my switch.

Thanks for the clarification. I will try the test re-attaching via ssh before the "checkp auto" timeout. All my tests were after the timeout.
Used the checkpoint 5 command…then exited the 8320….after 36 hours:
HPE-AOSCX8320# check auto 3
Error: Checkpoint auto timer is already ON <<<< ???
HPE-AOSCX8320# no check auto conf
WARNING: Restoring configuration. Do NOT add any new configuration.
Configuration changes will take time to process, please be patient.
logged in via ssh
check auto 5
exited the 8320
logged in via ssh (within 1 minute...pre- 5 minute timer)
NO aos-cx notification to checkpoint auto confirm
5 minutes expired...still notification but then tried:
Error: Checkpoint auto timer is already ON <<<<< ON ???
Thanks again for trying to help !!!
Can you log a case ?
