Hi Antonio,

You can schedule reboots with the 'reload at' command. This link explains how to do that:

Hope that helps.

Hi Mike,

If I'm right, with the reload command I can schedule a specific reboot, for a specific day, but what I need is that ASA reloads the same day-hour every week, not only once.

Thanks.

Hi Antonio,

In that case, the ASA doesn't support a feature that would accomplish this for you. You could look into setting up an Expect script that you can run on a PC with cron to login to the ASA and schedule a reload on a weekly basis.

Hope that helps.

To add to mrober2's answer, you can also use simple SecureCRT vbscript to do that. You can find many examples on-line.

I hope it helps.

I want to run a command 2 times per day at specific hour. As you mentioned, I should use cronjob in a PC to connect to ASA through SSH (or Putty). However, I cannot connect to ASA without password and I don't know how I can manage it in order to connect to it securely with password. Can you please help me?
