We don't have a reboot schedule, but I have learned that if not rebooted every once in a while they are bound to have problems. Usually we get in some fix packages once or twice a year that require a reboot and that does the trick. I have been meaning to write a shell script that invokes an HMC reboot and schedule it from one of my IBM i partitions every quarter.......your post has reminded me to do that!

Do you reboot your HMCs regularly?
