Reboot capsman clients after RouterOS update

Fri Nov 08, 2019 6:23 pm

All my Mikrotik WiFi setups are capsman managed.
APs are getting the new update from the central capsman server and reboot after the update is done.
But to also upgrade the firmware on the APs, a second reboot is required.
Some deployments have 10+ APs and would be a pain to log into every one of them to manually reboot.

The easiest way I found around this is just issue a second upgrade manually via Capsman/Remote CAP, selecting all APs and clicking on Upgrade button. (after the 1st upgrade is finished and the APs are back online)
The APs will not really upgrade if they already have the latest version, but at least they will reboot and upgrade the firmware also.

Anyone found another way to reboot the APs after a RouterOS update to allow the firmware to also be updated?

Thank you.

I'd like it to be a one reboot thing, but the second reboot is required for the firmware update.
