Last Reset from Reload, on a show Version

Unanswered Question
Oct 26th, 2009

When this says Last Reset From Reload, on the Show Version. Does this mean someone actually typed in Reload from the console? We had a catalyst 4500 reboot last week, and we are not sure why. We are trying to figure out how this rebooted.

Use management tools

If you have ACS running, you can check who logged in last week, what time and based on username you can tell who did what.

We do not have ACS running.

At the time we also didn't have Syslog enabled. I don't see any crash files on the Flash. the only thing I see on flash is the IOS and config flies.

does any other kind of Reboot show up as last reset by Reload? I know a physical shut down shows up at last reset by Power on.

Just curious if I should start changing my Passwords, on the switches.

If there is problem with the IOS like memory leak, it can make the box reboot, but it would generate crash files.

Do you have people logging with their usernames and passwords or you just use 1 username and password for every one?
