Rebooting RB1100HAx4 via Reset Button

One thing that annoyed me about my Mikrotik RB1100HAx4 router was the need to unplug darn thing when I wanted to reboot it. It does have reset button but the darn thing is just there for resetting configuration. Simple reboot was not the part of the repertoire.

Well, that changed with RouterOS 6.47. As of them there is a few more options under settings – most notably reset button configuration. Now action on reset button can be configured.

And it’s easy enough.

Terminal
/system routerboard reset-button
set enabled=yes on-event="/log info message=(\"Reset button\")\r\n/system reboot"

PS: This works with vast majority of Mikrotik routers and switches. But not all so your mileage may wary.
