Reloading a Cisco router using SNMP

Unanswered Question

Hello Experts,

Our requirement is to schedule a reload on a router automatically when it generates memory fragmentation errors and becomes inaccessible over VTY lines.

I read somewhere that this can be done using SNMP but I am not sure how.

Can someone please advise if this is possible and provide a method alongwith.

Thanks & Regards,


I have this problem too.

very easy. On the router, do this:

snmp-server host x.x.x.x cciesec

snmp-server system-shutdown

snmp-server community cciesec rw

now on a linux system, type this:

snmpset -v 2c -c cciesec . i 2

Easy right?
