Can you schedule a Aruba 3600 Controller to reboot on a weekly / monthly basis
There is nothing built into ArubaOS with that functionality, no.
You may be able to achieve this with a script and a MRV using its power adapter. This would serve the dual purpose of adding serial console access to the controller.
Would you care to provide or point to an example?
The MRV (www.mrv.com) LX series console server provides OOB serial connectivity. We use model LX4016-T but there's a huge array of density options (the LX-1000T 4-port is their smallest option, I believe).
Power management is achieved by adding their companion power controller, the MRV LX 5260. Commands sent from the console server can be pushed to the power controller. I belive we performed scheduled power cycling a while back using SNMP scripts. I'd have tio check. It looks like newer version of MRV firmware will allow scheduled "device-under-test" functionality and possibly other built-in scheduled power cycling options.
At Aruba, we believe that the most dynamic customer experiences happen at the Edge. Our mission is to deliver innovative solutions that harness data at the Edge to drive powerful business outcomes.
