Reboot Options
7.1. Ping-No-Answer Reboot
A Ping-No-Answer Reboot can be used to reboot one or more circuits when an attached
device does not respond to a Ping Command. In addition, the Ping-No-Answer Reboot
feature can also be configured to send an email, Syslog Message or SNMP Trap to
notify you whenever a Ping-No-Answer Reboot occurs. Please refer to Section 8.4 for
instructions on setting up email alarm notification for Ping-No-Answer reboots.
To set up a Ping-No-Answer Reboot, you must access command mode using a
password that permits Administrator level commands. In the Text Interface, the Ping-No-
Answer configuration menu is accessed via the Reboot Options menu (/RB). In the Web
Browser Interface, the Ping-No-Answer configuration menu is accessed via the Reboot
Options link. The Ping-No-Answer configuration menu can be used to Add, Modify,
View or Delete Ping-No-Answer Reboot functions.
