6. Reboot Options
In addition to performing reboot cycles in response to commands, the RSM-8R4 can
also be configured to automatically reboot outlets when an attached device does not
respond to a Ping command (Ping-No-Answer Reboot) or according to a user defined
schedule (Scheduled Reboot.)
• Ping-No-Answer Reboot: When the Ping-No-Answer feature is enabled, the
RSM-8R4 will Ping a user selected IP address at regular intervals. If the IP address
does not respond to the Ping command, the RSM-8R4 will reboot one or more user
selected outlet(s). Typically, this feature is used to reboot devices when they cease
to respond to the Ping command.
• Scheduled Reboot: A scheduled reboot is used to initiate a reboot cycle at a user
selected time and day of the week. When properly configured and enabled, the
RSM-8R4 will reboot one or more outlets on a daily or weekly basis. The Scheduled
Reboot feature can also be used to switch outlet(s) Off at a user selected time, and
then switch them back On again at a later, user selected time.
This section describes the procedure for configuring and enabling Ping-No-Answer
Reboots and Scheduled Reboots.
Note: When defining parameters via the Text Interface, make certain to press
the [Esc] key several times to completely exit from the configuration menus
and save newly defined parameters. When parameters are defined via the
Text Interface, newly defined parameters will not be saved until the "Saving
Configuration" message is displayed.
