Re: Is there a way to schedule resets of APs? (MSM720 + MSM422/460s)

Just to be clear: are we talking about RESETTING the MSM as in setting it to factory defaults, or REBOOTING them?

 

Reboot is easy to arrange. Configure a scheduled config upload at desired time. The controller will upload config file, then reboot, then push the config to the APs forcing them to reboot in turn.

Re: Is there a way to schedule resets of APs? (MSM720 + MSM422/460s)

Hi everyone,

I was doing Factory Reset in all APs by windows scripting and plink.exe. A simple reboot did not resolve the issue.

I have one script to reset factory defaults and another one to accept all one by one because the come back as Suspicious Device.

After upgrade firmware to Software version: 6.6.8.0-23368 I did not need to reset factory defaults the Aps.

I had a lot of tickets in HPE Support about CPU load high and they release this versions fixing this issues.

I have two MSM760 working as Teaming, today the Uptime is Uptime: 109 days 23 hours 18 minutes and the APs go more then 45 days. After that I ran the scripts in preventive way in all APs to avoid any issues.

Hello,

 

in the attached file I brought the script I use to reset and accept the msm access points. A single script does two tasks.

It is necessary the programs plink.exe, now.exe and sleep.exe in the same folder.

the script file can be named reset_accept_msm.cmd

the file aps_somente.txt have the APs names in the controller.

plink logs in the controller like admin@controller-host-name

the file log_resets_1a1.txt has the reset logs.

the file log_accept_1a1.txt has the accept logs.

 

I hope I can help.
