Say if the change you are making could possibly lock you out of the router (or worse, disconnect the router from the network) set it to auto reload as an emergency back-out mechanism. You can always cancel it if everything goes well. :-)
Simple to do.
Router# reload in 5
Router# reload at 22:00:00 May 27 2008
*** --- RELOAD SCHEDULED ---
* Mar 1 23:18:42: %SYS-5-SCHEDULED_RELOAD: Reload requested for 22:00:00 UTC Mon May 27 2008 by console
You can also cancel it by using:
Router# reload cancelBest Regards,
