Conext Combox reboots by itself

Hi!
I was wondering whether anyone sees a somewhat strange behavior of Combox: it reboots by itself every night at about 3:05am. I do not know whether it happened after the upgrade to 2.0 firmware or it did this before but this month I have a constantly working Linux daemon that gets data from the box over Modbus and I see it in the daemon logs. Somehow I vaguely remember reading somewhere about such a thing but can not remember where. :confused:

Thanks in advance,

    Yes, they all do it. Even before the 2.0 firmware. Some sort of housekeeping routine @ 3am, thats what the manual says anyway ;)

    When mine locked up just did a hard power cycle of the ComBox, never had to cycle my devices? So far running ver 2.0 have only had the 3 AM reboot. Nothing like the 0 to 5 per day had with previous version. Tech I hope is working on top level display issue, not adding Grid inverter output to XW output/loads correctly. Only showing what is going thru the XW. It does record production correctly though! Sure others have experieced other items depending on what is attached.
    if you are having issues put in a tech support request, this is the only way it will get fixed.

    They almost shipped a SCP free to me because of complaining about the missing features in last firmware for the enhanced grid support and the generator plus selection. darn, they came out with Ver 2 which has them:grr
    The squeaky wheel gets the grease!
