    Hi team,

     

    Is there a way to get the AP reboot reason without the access to CLI ? I prefer AMON, if not syslog.

     

    Thanks in advance.

    VIA syslog at the default level of warning, the access point will say why it rebooted:

     

    Aug 2 17:21:02 :303022:  <WARN> |AP LAB-335@192.168.1.235 nanny|  Reboot Reason: AP rebooted Wed Dec 31 16:03:30 PST 1969; SAPD: Reboot after successful image upgrade 

      I am not aware if it is sent via AMON.

    the event is sent in AMON but not the reason, one can in theory discern an AP reboot from an AP rebootstrap, bot not the reboot reason. Further, the message is a bit buggy, so best to stick to syslog and/or snmp traps.
