I am using four SG300 52 ports switches and one SG300 24 port POE switch for around 150 clients. I have been observing the random reboot of all these switches at the same time from last 2 months. Three 52 port switches are up-linked at one 52 port switch which is getting internet from firewall. And POE is also getting internet from the firewall separately. I have checked all the logs but couldn't find anything concrete. After these random reboots, i observed the time settings come to default in all switches. Any views on it?
Double check logs.
What firmware version is installed on the switches? The same?
Can you upgrade the firmware?
Can you configure ACL to management interface to avoid unauthorized access?
Due to this issue i have already updated the firmware from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 on all the switches. But issue is still there.
This is what i found on logs:

Hi, seems a fault related to IPv6 (IP6C) that causes a reboot.
Are you using IPv6 in your network? If no, try to disable IPv6 features on the switches and on other devices in your network.
Anyhow my suggestion is to open a case to STAC in order to get an official answer from Cisco with the cause and a possible workaround or a firmware fix.
No we are not using IPV6 in our network. I have disabled it on all switches. I will monitor it for sometime and post my observation.
If issue comes again, i will contact Cisco.
Thanks for your help.
