Reload Cisco Router

Scheduled Reload

eg every day at 3am:

conf t
event manager applet ReloadRouter
event timer cron name ReloadRouter cron-entry "00 03 * * *"
action 33 reload

NB Word of warning to those trying to do it with built in KRON service of IOS – rebooting a router requires to answer “yes” at the CLI prompt and therefore will NOT work with KRON, only Embedded Event Manager (EEM) can do it.
