cron job

By jgtyler ·
I want to set up a cron job that reboots my netware 5 system on a monthly schedule. I have already downloaded the cron.nlm and loaded it. My problem is that when it issues the command "RESTART SERVER", it asked if I want to "DOWN y" the server, is their a switch I can set to answer this automaticly?

Usually, netware will only give this prompt if it thinks there's some reason to not shut the server down -- clients with files open, NLM's that don't unload correctly, etc.

I guess what I'm curious about is "why reboot"? I've got netware servers that go many months without requiring a reboot. Unless there's some specific problem to clear, it's probably not worth it.
