Schedule a reboot

L0 Member

Hi all,

is it possible to schedule a reboot on a PA-200? I like to schedule a reboot on specific time.

The firewall is connected to a DSL modem. Our ISP cuts the connection every 24 hours. The interruption of the connection should not occure during business hours.


Kind Regards

- The command to restart the system is 'request restart system'.

- You can use the XML API to send the above command in the following format:


- An external script can be setup that sends the above API call every 24 hours to the firewall.

- Additional details on the API can be found at the following link:

- The 'DevCenter' community may also have some custom scripts that the users on the community may have put together.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. So I need to set up a task on a management station? There is no build-in option to do this job?

Also, it would also assist by requesting your Sales SE/Reseller to submit a feature request to Product Management for this feature via Request ID 2423.

As nato pointed out, there is an enhancement request open to add this option built in, you can definitely request your SE to vote for it.

In the meantime, you can setup a simple external script on a PC/linux workstation that can periodically issue XML calls.
